2.6 million hearts

Haifa Zangana

 

Wars do not have holidays

(employers claim they are self-employed)

Their job has to be fulfilled,

At any cost,

At all times,

Not to leave behind,

Green orchards,

Fertile land,

Or blue sky.

( Some argue wars are sensitive to light).

 

Wars do not read reports,

They are far too busy,

Devouring lives.

 

Wars do not read enquires,

Of 2.6 million words.

Unlike Chilcot,

Their mission

Would not be accomplished

Until

Death swallows

2.6 million hearts

Or

Preferably more.

 

After all,

We have been warned,

In the beginning,

Was the war.
