Memorial lies

Post by Amadis » Sun Oct 18, 2020 12:02 pm

911 America cries,
unused to tears

December 17th, Iraq
A mother morns,
bows in silent prayer,
her children now dead.

The lie that shook the globe
The blood that fed the schemers.

No questions, no doubt.
It is all just global commerce
Nothing to see here,
turn away, it is all ok.

Yes, there are many tragedies in the world Amadis, some get more press than others, some are written in history books, some are passed down from generation to generation.
