The World Is Exploding

The World Is Exploding short poem

Photo by State Farm

The world is exploding; candidates issuing statements; Dow falling
Funniness is old news; Bush’s dumbness; Gore’s sighs turn to nothing
Middle East: hatred is on fire
Yugoslavia: a revolution; payback time; old guard holding on
Persian Gulf: a bomb blows a hole in the U.S.S.Cole killing 17 Americans
President conferring; will we retaliate? Of course, no doubt, it’s the way of the world
Diplomats trying to stop the bleeding
Healthcare, Social Security, gun control, abortion put on hold
Oil prices skyrocketing; political landscape changing
Pope asking for peace; praying to a different God than Arab or Jews
Searching for common ground to end the fighting, dying, crying, mourning.
Israeli soldiers; Palestinian children.
O God! What will it take for man to learn that we are all brothers and sisters?
