THE HORROR OF WAR

headless bodies
burned flesh
a wedding band
a hand that belonged to a father
torn off the body
a memory of a different past
 

headless bodies
a lonely head in a green field
eyes wide open
see how they used to love
mountains of starved children
shiny bones
burning flesh
these are images we should put in a frame
mount them in our homes
so we never forget
the true horror of war  ##
