BARBED WIRE FOR HEROES

Image

 

A symphony so bleak it was all I could hear

Didn’t need it

Radio off

Took a break

Barbed wire for heroes

Scrambled egg in the safety of a transport café

For you and me

Maybe a newspaper

Cheap tabloid

Read the sports pages

While the world spins

Check out page three

Pretty girls?

Silly girls?

Don’t know

Don’t care

Death, famine, riots, disease

Sick things for voyeurs only

While the world turns

So long as it’s a long way away

Do I care?

Yes
