Drown in Flesh and Blood

An Abecedarian

Drown in Flesh and Blood

A conflict unfolds on the foreign terrain

Betrayal within the truce of lies

Chaos reign, a siren sounds

Drone overhead, destruction on land

Echoes of war, canons untamed

Grim politics, history framed

Humanity lost deep within their lies

Innocence, drown in flesh and blood

Justice flooded like soldier's death

Knowledge sets boundaries, broke now

Lives torn in a violent cascade

Minds, seduced and raped and hailed

Nation interfere, ideologies collide

Opinions spoken, a crossfire of hatred

Pain and greed, combined and killed

Quantum of faith, failed leadership

Ravaged cities, a testimony of fears

Soldiers bathed in mother's tears

Tanks, creeping closer and closer

Unveiling the toll of destruction

Victims lament in a dessert tent

Wounds won't heal, memories survive

Xenophobia grows, freedom out of reach

Yearning for peace, a global wish for death
