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.
