Echoes Of Iraq: A Poetic Lament By The Rivers Of Babylon

By the Rivers of Babylon

by the rivers of Babylon,
families sit down and weep
remembering loved ones
carried away from safety
as gunmen ran through town.
the Lord’s song cannot
be sang, imposed to bow down
as lunatics scream “raze it, raze it”,
in the name of God, but
not a sound can be heard
from the captives…
