breakfast in Damascus

main course falling rubble on a bed of flesh,

followed by children out of breath

families on the move and in fear

world looks on leftovers please

up close it’s cold and personal

from afar protesters rally on

they complain and frown

watch while it goes down

mixed groups dreams and power

confused leaders afraid to act

all sides beckon them in

a Damascus breakfast

power hungry and grim
