Innocents were those who had suffered!

Geo-political
conflict but innocents were
those who had suffered

Can their conscience be
cleared by pointing fingers at
others in the fray

Initial reports
showed vital evidence at
crash site were tampered

No winners in all
conflicts except the sick few
who designed them all

For CARPE DIEM #519 - in loving memory of
the recent Malaysian Airlines tragedy and
PU's Poetry Pantry #210

  4. A crime of such horrible magnitude one's mind, literary, reels - in an effort to take in, and wrap your head around it. Another awful, senseless blow to humanity, that leaves people of empathy wondering: what kind of trajectory is humankind on - and, what hope is there for the children of this earth.

  5. Your tribute to those lives lost in yet another act of aggression this week is very moving, Hank. Where are the answers? Where is the humanity?

  6. Innocents always suffer. Written off as 'collateral damage' on the spreadsheet of war.

  22. Hank,

    Sad that we have to endure an even harsher form of evil, than all that we thought we had seen before. The loss of innocent lives is shocking and unforgivable.
    I too have tried to put into words, something of my shock..I am grateful to belong to a poetry group, which seeks to express our thoughts, through our own words.
