Guilty Witness

Cobh R&W Daily Prompt ~ VI

I hate seeing children in war zones on TV. The innocent suffer without end, no matter where they are, they die and are recorded as collateral damage. It’s sick.

Guilty Witness.
The first victim of War is truth,
The last is nearly always a skinny child,
Who watches friends die hungry,
When the worlds clumsy efforts arrive late,
I in guilt just turn off the box.
