NaPoWriMo Day #16

Off prompt again today – In response to some headlines

Mare Nostrum

By Scott Bailey © 2015

 

Mare Nostrum
We don’t support it
They said
So it is gone
In other words
Let them die
Stopping people dying
Might encourage them to live
And after all
What are they
But the victims of war
And rape and torture
Who wants them cluttering up the place?

A fitting epitaph
Perhaps
For the West
