Unhumanitarian

Standard

dropped bombs

poisonous gas 

a chemical assault

Syrian children and mothers

gasping 

paralysis, brimmed lungs, foamed mouths 

bodies blanket the ground

further from peace

war crime.

King’s Hope

Chat

his dreams
gasp for dear life
Lincoln Memorial
justice and peace, passionate fight
words of hope, seismic impact
striving for change
yes ……. still.
