The first ‘Bomb Damage’
inspired by ‘The Thinker’
is seized by Police.
Devastation and despair,
the only thoughts of
Children play in rubble
beside the image of a
white kitten, pink bow tie
Kitten plays with a wire ball
on a pot-marked wall.
This kitten misses playing with joy
the children miss playing with joy,
the plight of Gaza is highlighted
with millions of hits on the world wide web
because we only use the internet
to look at kittens.
Banksy – Gaza Strip

Very effective use of the iconic ‘kitten’ to say something important, something that needs to be heard by everyone. This is the first of your poems I have read. It will make reading your work a must do.
