Poetry Thursday: in the news

The Bomb

Push it underground,
bury it then set it off.

Put the world on notice
that you are one

with power.  Destruction
unparalleled, and ignored.

The world forces sanctions
that leave the innocent

hollow and cold, like the shells
of the bomb they suffer for.

And no one thinks to free
these people, to repeat a war

we’ve fought before
again, but then

they finally ask
for proof.
