Baghdad Market Graves

Car bombings in Baghdad do not stir us to hashtag, or Facebook profile with their flag and no Western newspaper front pages flood with their blood. or names or stories. We created this mess, we have one common enemy. Let us join together as a world not a religion or a colour or a government…and beat their cowardice.


Ripped out diseased heart
left lambs led to the slaughter
Urgent transplant, soon

Removing disease
Gaping holes of infection
Packed with cowardice

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.
