somewhere in the world (poem)

0

somewhere in the world today

there’s a storm, there’s rain

there’s a tidal wave, it’s flooding

some homes were washed away

somewhere in the world today

somewhere in the world today

there’s a storm, there’s no power

there’s a fire, it’s burning

some homes were turned to ashes

somewhere in the world today

somewhere in the world today

there’s a war, there’s unrest

there’s a bomb, it’s exploding

some homes were blown away

somewhere in the world today

somewhere in the world today

there’s anger, there’s sorrow

there’s hatred, it’s spreading

some homes were torn apart

somewhere in the world today

somewhere in the world today

something is happening

not nice, not good, not right

but somewhere else

in the world today

it’s a quiet peaceful night.

moscow (poem)

i always thought that tanks

were heavy artillery

meant to fight other tanks

or planes

or other armored vehicles

not people

i guess it’s true

that they’re not meant for people

because it seems

people can stop them

after all.
