“Fracas”

Boom! Boom!! Boom!!!
Was the sound.
Bullets tackling Bullets!
Mothers wailing for their Children.
Children weeping,
Like a careless downpour in tropical Nigeria.

Tanks firing shots,
Like a non-stop waterfall.
Fathers losing their grip!
The environs being outrun!
Blood, now asphalt to the roads.

People carrying their cross in the crossfire.
Dead Bodies looking more like collateral damage.
Hope like a shadow you can’t grab!
War is a beautiful calamity!
