Melikhaya Zagagana


Damage in Somme


A boot stuck
in a soldier's
foot; a helmet
stood two feet
away from its head.

Guns a waste of steel
waiting for recycle.

Tons of bullets heaped
on the ground like fire woods;

The remains held hands shoulder-
high in meditation, were powdered
faces of dead bodies must have been burnt.

    NB: lack of I.Q. is not a joke but pandemic as disease, people need to take necessary precautions as often as they care to wee. In this case Leslie should book himself in for examination. (Report) Reply
