Grains Of Sand


History remembers King Henry VIII,
his mass gallows lovingly called ‘Tyburn Trees’,
and victims protesting King’s control on church,
but not the grains of sand flown in air by wind.

‘Tyburn Trees’ are nothing new to power dealers,
‘Collesseum’ was its synonym for slave gladiators,
Hitler named it ‘Concentration camp’,
recent terrorists religiously erect it everywhere by guns.

The grains of sand are universal,
they thronged in amphitheaters,
strengthened Axis Power
now they fear tumult by speckled bands.
