Hell in a boat

In a boat on a sea

children, babies dying

what hell is this?

watching as an outsider

seeing all, but doing nothing,

not being able to do anything

powerless, as if limbless,

no step forward or backward

sideways or a jump

will now save these lives.

  1. It is a deplorable state and a testament to the problems in our world that we couldn’t begin to understand unless we are living in it. Excellent.
