Somewhere in the ocean
A huge ship unleashes its might
The fury hits the city.
Doves fly up from the mosque
The city rumbles.
Smoke slithers through the streets
Like a dying snake.
Now there is fire.
Human struggle.
No song in the City.
There is death.
It is just the beginning.
Someday we will see what
The enlightened already do.
When the birds of peace rise
From the city
On outstretched wings
Towards a sky ablaze with nothing
But the colors of dawn.
