Poetry: “Silent minute”

Just a reflection, of sorts, on that practice of silent minutes after some terrible event.

***~***~***~***

Silent minute

Just one minute
For the children
In the ruins
Of the city

Just one minute
For the women
Being raped
Inside their homes

Just one minute
For the youngsters
Forced in armies
Under threat

Just one minute
For the people
Fleeing war
In sinking boats

Just one minute
For the doctors
In their clinics
Bombed apart

Just one minute
For the workers
Digging people
From debris

Just one minute
For the wretches
That have died
In senseless wars
