    SOMALIA by Brian Rosenberger
    March 23, 2009  Poetry   Tags:   

    This is Somalia, land of tradition

    A cock crows
    beginning the fast
    from dawn to dusk
    sins burned away
    the living pray.

    This is Somalia, land of corpses.

    Vultures circle
    the feast never ends
    from now till forever
    skin stripped from bone
    the dead hunger.

    This is Somalia.
    Old traditions have fallen
    There is no god but Allah…
    replaced by
    There is no god.

    This is Somalia. This is hell.

    END
