Aftermath

A picture of what happens after a terrorist incident or during war, people get hurt.


The smell of death

Pollutes the breath,

As ashes crumble under foot

And shapeless lonely figures

Slide, fumble footed

Over the greasy remains

Crying silently

Into the troubled air.

The shocked

Bewildered and horrified

The wail of sirens

And flashing lights

Body parts

Unidentified

Lost in rubble

As blood blooms

Red liquid puddled

In crevices and dust.
