Child’s play

The child plays and then

stops to ponder for a short while

wonders what is going on

and why they have brought

him into this place

where greed and hunger

walk hand in hand

where we kill just because we can

condemning with one hand

passing on weapons with the other

where freedom’s fighters

have their life extinguished

upon the orders of the mighty.

A tear forms on his face.
