Stop! with a sigh

By Lydia Manx

CNN -- Microsoft -- pictures at 10
stories and lies -- interchangeable
Reasons -- unfathomable
Soft spoken war whispers
hard spoken people dying
cries unheard in twilight
violence for violence sake -- we get
horror films we adore
war should make us cry -- no --
yet we click another channel
I love lucy marathon
detach from reality
tears gone -- the blue light
has emptied minds
hearts afire no more.
