Halabcha, The City of Dream
by Ahmed Amjed and Dr Hana Al-Bayyati

I was on the mountain
When a loud scream
Was coming from downstream
Watching thousands of men
And women.
The wall
Was falling
The doll
Was burning
The girl
Was running
Screaming,
Falling,
Burning
With her doll
All goes to heaven
The realm of dream
Deem to be the theme
Of a burning team
The beam, the gleam, the stream
All in one scheme
Ruined by an extreme regime.
