O Turkey
great shaken land
for you do we weep
but our tears
are not as rich
as the blood
you have shed
As your moon rises
and your stars salute
who will mourn?
who will wail?
Who is left
to dig the cold graves
of your dead?

O Turkey
great fallen land
for you do we grieve
as the lives
of your children
seep away
in the mud
The screams of the lost
the anguish untold
whose voices?
whose terrors?
Who is left
upon your crushed
landscape of death?

Dear Turkey
great wasted one
sad beloved land:
for you do we weep.

Severn, this is such a good one! Very sad! Guess God just needed more souls in Heaven quickly!

Well deVine always finds the good if there is any! It makes it seem a bit less painful....nice of you to write such a moving piece when the world needs it most....what a nightmare they have lived....I can't even imagine something like that happening here....chilling. Great piece...!

And here again I see the beauty of your empathetic heart!
And well written as well in a poignant voice!
