my sunday poem … # 9

my sunday poem … # 9

These are not really intended to be offered as poems … more as captions to these two heartbreaking images. I don’t really know.

in gentle arms


there’s a soldier on the main street
holds a child in his arms
she looks just like a rag doll
she ain’t done nobody harm

through the smoke an’ all confusion
he looks down in dismay
searching hard to find a reason
for a life just blown away


no more borders little man
in paradise today
for you have found another land
where you can dance and play
