A fly on the wall
A Fly on the wall
(explosions in the street)

There’s a boom!
There’s a smash.
The man falls.

There is glass.
There is screaming.
The man bleeds.

There was TV.
There was couch.
The man cries.

There was son.
There was daughter.
Both died.

TV playing,
in the front room.
The front window,
the mans wife.

Their children.
A bomb.
The glass window.
The man’s life.

Ah, to be a fly...we could observe all these atrocities the way we would observe the atrocities animals impose on each other!
