The Thirst For Revenge (Inspired by Page 8 of Daughter of Fortune by Isabelle)


The streets where bodies are sprawled

The wild law-less murder of innocent people

Like a mad-woman running

naked in the streets

The WAR gave

birth to a hatred  that

the people soaked up

inside their hearts

like liquid spilled onto


Blood spattered streets,

buildings with ceilings

caved in and a feeling of

little or no hope

 floating in the air.

There remains

a small glimmer

of peaceful thoughts

in the hearts

and souls of those

who are on the outside looking in thinking,

‘If only we can quell the thirst

for  revenge.
