A Story to Tell
And there is a story to tell
of how hunger tattoo our skin(s)
Of those innocent infants choked to death
Of those burnt homes
Of those innocent souls as sacrificial goats
Of those innocent deflowered-gardens
“Booties of war.” They say.
In the armpit of war,
One becomes hyena
Who sees others
