    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.
