Infinity: The Views of a Dreamer

Haditha

Price of blood,
is Arab blood worth less than the blood of others?
When is murder not murder?
Collateral damage,
when it is the other way around — it is called terrorism
Children of Haditha,
hid under the cupboards out of hope the soldiers would leave
Crouching and hiding as automatic gunfire spared not a soul,
leaving the fathers lifeless
Mothers crying over their innocent husbands,
not spared and gunned down
No mercy for the children,
ripped from underneath the cupboards
Pleading “rahma, rahma!”
Their cries silenced with the coldness of the soldiers,
filling their sweet innocent bodies with bullets
Punishment?
Covered up, a denial,
the gravest crime of all to the loved ones
To deny the incident ever took place,
not a single soul of the incident received due punishment
The fog of war when it finally was revealed they called it,
when is murder not murder?
The children of Haditha scream out,
the same screams the children of My Lai echoed years before
