Modern Warfare

written by: Leanne Neill



I loved your faith in me;
one day, I'd change the world.
Alas, now the big bombs
are dropping.
I'm firing pecking missiles
delivered in the beaks of vultures,
feasting on your vulnerability;
fragmenting whatever peace
we once shared,
into the spray of unholy warfare.
