Very good poem.
YasuRan chapter 1 . 8/8/2011
'I hope that its children

will put out their angry fires

and see through their thick smoke

and stop.'

I agree so much. What happened to that man was tragic but that's all the more reason for not resorting to hooliganism the way these 'protestors' have done.

The two main stanzas are perfect for evoking that sense of bitter hope in the wake of disaster. Very powerful with the ending 'and stop'. It is a bit too short for my liking but overall, it does leave a good impact.

I know what you mean, I live in England too and the riots are horrible.
