CHILDREN OF WAR

Lilliputian figures
hold up their poise
confronting life.
Innocent eyes
unfold the world’s brutality.
Bleeding youth
whose ashen dreams
are fading away.
Dewy-eyed children
whose future is being sacrificed
on Life’s concentration camp.
Alas, Man!
It’s us who have deprived children
of their innocence.
It’s us who have them killed,
declaring wars,
in the name of Peace.
It’s not Herod!
