Poem by Lubna Ghanem

A Show

Darkened darkened heavy inside
Demolition on the sides
Buildings up, buildings down
People ready to collide.

Give me feeling to arise
Give me strength for I cut ties
With the world, north to south
I am a victim of its lies.

Photograph me from head to toe
Display my wounds for all I know
I will gain but some laughs
From my butchers as they gloat.

The media, I am its precious guest
The headline in the daily digest
I speak wisdom; I utter peace
Yet my land will never rest.
