Variations of a world – National Poetry Month 2016 – Day27

variationsee, hear, feel the dew drop singing
trying to tell us the forgotten tale
of a drought that turned man against man

when the darkness cries
in the belly of the animal
man lights up the cave

the desert buries its heroes
next to the anti-heroes
while victims mourn for no one

babies think technology
gave them birth, while
parents search for the ON button
