HOWL DOWN THE SCREAMING WIND Poem by Colin Ian Jeffery


Howl down the screaming wind
Stem gushing flow of innocent blood
Rescue lost souls from the whirlpool's trap
Floundering amidst thunderous waves
Dashed and broken upon jagged rocks.

War mongers cries surge out of control
Silencing prayers for peace
Lies are told to quell the panic of war
With the inmates running the asylum
And madness giving birth to our destruction.
