Remember The Victims.


Remember the victims
As they crossed the line.
Do not forget the victims.
-
The happy childish faces
Waving for their parents.
Remember the victims
-
Who walked past exploding
Cars and were spread like paste.
Do not forget the victims
-
As they crossed the line
Exhausted and triumphant.
Remember the victims
-
Who herded their sheep
Unaware of the hovering eye.
Do not forget the victims
-
Who sat in the classroom
Hands thick with paint.
Remember the victims
-
Sluicing on the ground -
Incredulous as they evaporate.
Do not forget the Victims.
Remember The Victims.
