Syria
by scott from jail

There in the photograph
Hitler-esque smile at hand
Waving in a thin elegance
To surrounding and admiring crowds
Stands the president
Strangling the city of Homs
Violently
As if one can strangle a birth
And stop Birth
Itself
Beneath the footfalls of a faithful happy multitude
Waving
To the president
Before the camera
Whilst I
Type poems
Wondering.
