Poetry: “6th of July 2016”

Making sense of events in poetry form.


6th of July 2016

Scorched earth tactics
Flames licking the evening sky
Sleepy suburb wakes from slumber
Tragedy has parked itself
By your door

Chariot of ABS and airbags
Turned into a death hearse
A coffin ready for cremation
Filled with flammable liquids
Not compliant with life

Driver with his motives unclear
With talents that were launded
Demons there beneath the surface
A battle fought for many years
Now it’s over
