An Apology


Aleppo, this day, will be
our unspoken apology
to those children gassed,
shelled – small witnesses
to our huge mistakes,
bearers of the fall-out,
each one reduced under
our ancient-held belief
of war within the cradle
of their civilization:
Our solution for peace
is to stand-aside,
until one side has won.
