Newspaper

I found an old newspaper
filled with heroes and widows
thousands of orphans
from bygone days
today’s war or yesteryear’s
no difference
wars always talk of the brave
generals and their wonders

After the War

Share

The houses stayed the same
windows firmly shut
always longing for
a hand’s quiver

inside
a widow always lamented

a mother for her son’s death
in the front line
