POEM – UNTITILED

08 Jul POEM – UNTITILED

They may be the rebels
but they’re only kids;
They are probably wondering
what they ever did.

To deserve such a future
fighting, killing and spying;
No proper home
just a life of hiding.

Given a gun
at just the age of eight;
A licence to kill
and no proper place to keep safe.

To learn and to live
no education;
A gun and flip-flops
no proper protection.

Make this argument heard
all over the world;
Tell them not to just ignore
all the kids caught up in war.
