A Poem by Rich Allo

In memory of all those people killed in Paris, France on 13th November 2015 due to tragic terrorist activities...Rest in peace.

Today the perished post their love
To relatives, companions
Their thoughts undreamed of,

Today they come together alone,
Free such malice,
Heal all flesh and bone,

Today red venom drips in wounds,
Tears of division,
Add stone to the tombs,

Today the firearms ring through ears,
States in chaos now,
Arms cement the love of peers,

Endless storms turn forty to dust,
Thirty seconds hell,
Now, where is the trust?

But, what if we intrude upon cuts in the East?
What if we attempt to bring about such peace?
Does that give reason for the locking of pawns?
And the screaming of a species
whose blood has been drawn.

Today we remember the fallen and gone
Of last night’s adversity
Now, crave a new dawn,

Today hearts open to the ones who’ve strayed,
To the ventricles of France,
To the ones who should’ve stayed.
