Superpowers banging heads -
ego-driven playground bullies
with the lives of millions
In their grasping hands.
Milana sweeps the basement floor, moving bomb rubble from here to there...
Her daughter still wheezes -
A gift from president Assad.
The curtain moves (husband returned); shakes his head,
no food today and Kasandra is dead.
Beyond the broken walls, suited men move their pawns from
here to there...
Taking us one move closer to Mutually Assured Destruction.
