Think About Aleppo

minds are filled with petty things
you look at the gossip columns
those things that concern you so much
who is with who, and why is that
and is he having an affair with her
it’s reported
mud sticks
it’s speculated

who knows?
who cares?

there are people in other lands
buried in despair
terrified
dying
no water
children who passed beyond crying
and no hope anywhere
slaughter

get a mind,
or stay silent
