BRIEF THOUGHTS

The sounds of life…
the distant thunderous train…
a barking dog,
……… a gurgling drain!
Distant screams…
caught in memories…
……… new rights for Abbos,
in the territories…
pregnant women…
old men on seats…
in city streets…
and pigeons…
if not pigeons,
seagulls…
squabbling bloody,
seagulls!
white waves and youth…
…… enjoying brief freedom…
with costly,
night club bedlam!…
the President, the press…
the bullshit… the lies,
the faithful and the loyal……
tears in a million eyes…
then WAR!!!!!!!
And it all begins again……
