Poetizing spontaneously without combusting

Children Are Not Bombs

 

no bombsChildren Are Not Bombs

Bombs are not children
nor are they wives
sons or daughters
yet some think them
explosive enough
to catapult
onto street corners
into café’s
or supermarkets
and even subways

Children are not bombs
they are not built
with kevlar bones
their innocent psyches
should not be brainwashed
with hate
their tiny hands
should be holding
pencils
not detonators.
