Battle of Aleppo by Frances Smith

Omron sits alone;
A supermodel of suffering
Blood dripping
War continuing
Bombs killing, maiming,
Scarring hearts
Another child of war
Where are considerate adults,
Looking for their minds
Looking for their children
Why aren’t the governing
Parents preserving their future
In Syria and beyond
Where are the fathers
Where is The Father?
 ..
Omron sits alone
A supermodel of suffering
Blood dripping
War continuing
Bombs killing, maiming
Omron, an injured child
Who needs a cwtch
Not a camera lens
Or is a cwtch also forbidden
In this mad and perverse world?
