Our valor you reward with scars and dread.
The honors you bestow leave good men maimed.
Though back from battle, lauded with loud cheer,
the din of combat rings on in the head
of each who’s seen things better left unnamed
that slaughtered friends and comrades still held dear.

Your vultures spread their wings in sun to dry
the stench of carrion from bloody death
picked over, after ravaged by your dogs,
while armies, trained to never ask you why,
rush on until they huff-in Hades’ breath
to join him in his misty world of fogs.

Heroic soldiers, these who are now gone,
will never know whose side you’re really on.

Work in progress. Needs another verse, maybe a bridge. I think it'd be a nice duet.

BOOM


Wee-ooh, wee-ooh


She wakes.


Ba-boom, ba-boom


Her world shakes.


Wee-ooh, wee-ooh


Run underground and wait.


Wee-ooh, wee-ooh


It's a game they play.


Ba-boom, ba-boom


For any distraction- pray.


Wee-ooh, wee-ooh


while their hearts quake.


Ba-boom, ba-boom


Where's your crown?


she hears them say.


Ba-boom ba-boom


Wee-ooh, wee-ooh


QUIET


Silence is a saving grace.


BOOM


Wee-ooh, Wee-ooh


There goes that siren.


Ba-boom ba-boom


Too soon to escape the den.


Wee-ooh, wee-ooh


Where's that crown- pretend.


Ba-boom, ba-boom


keep her search'in


Wee-ooh, wee-ooh


 Pray for peace again.


Ba-boom, ba- boom


There goes that thief


Wee-ooh, wee-ooh


it taunts- come get me.


QUIET


Again she sleeps.


Ba-boom, ba-boom


is far away now


like a heartbeat


in the background


but in her mind


there is no sound


..........................


only sweet dreams


of peace and crowns.

Author's Note: I think this still needs some work.


Yo


A coworker of mine Yo
has an app on his Yo phone
that goes Yo every time Yo
an air raid Yo siren goes off
Yo
It goes off Yo too often
Yo


The only Yo video
I’ve seen recently from Israel
Yo
Was a home movie
Of a two year old girl


The thing about technology
Is that everything happens so fast
Yo
It takes less than a second
That Yo
That one little syllable
Yo


The little girl is running her father ragged
They’re looking for her crown
Aiefo haketer?
Where’s the crown?


Over and over
Running around till bath time
Yo


That’s it to us
Working in an office in Brooklyn
Yo
One syllable
Less than a second


That little girl
Doesn’t hear Yo
Instead her bath time is interrupted with
The wee-ooh
A sound heard so often
That this two year old girl’s parents have given it a nickname
To make it less scary


Grabbing her up in a towel
The little girl and her parents run
The wee-ooh interrupted us before
You could get dressed
Say the little girl’s parents
Once they are safely in the shelter
Zeh lo yofeh
That’s not nice
Says the little girl


The man and his wife dress their daughter
To a soundtrack of wee-oohs and booms


The little girl feels the booms
As bombs fall out of the sky


The way her parents say boom
Reminds me
Of my little brothers and sister
Of how I play a game with them
My uncle played with me


Sit on my lap
Lift my legs as we go up the hill
And then boom
Legs fall down
And boom
The child slides down


Boom
the shelter shakes
Yo
I go about my day
Wee-ooh
A little girl’s bedtime routine is interrupted


In Crown Hieghts
An old air raid siren
Signals the start of Shabboss
The day of rest


I once stood underneath it
Nearly took my ears out
Wee-ooh Wee-ooh


It’s hard to imagine a Yo that loud
An app can never be that intrusive


The little girl is in her room now
I hope the Wee-ooh and the boom
Don’t disturb our sleep
Zeh lo Yofeh
That’s not nice


In Brooklyn
I set my phone to vibrate
