Blue And White Ribbon

Poem By Alison Smith

They strung the tape about the scene.
It marked where the deed took place.
A splatter of red upon the ground
What story did it tell?

Today lives where sacrificed,
Today others walk past and wonder
Today people lost control
And now the ribbon surrounds the scene.

We all stare and try to guess
Why this happened today.
Why two lives now lay in doubt.
What caused the fight today?

Have we failed to show the other cheek,
Is violence now the norm
Today young lives where sacrificed
Was the outcome worth the pain?

They blue and white ribbon marked the scene
The old dears complained they could not pass
They had to have normality
Even though they saw the tragedy.

Hear the thunder echoing about
A sky with a green hue
The sign of hail on the way
Lighting giving a great show

They were created with perfection
But arrived before well baked
Sent to show the way
Searchers of another day

Hello my darlings
Its time we sat for a chat
Its been such a long time
Since I looked at you

A Passionate Man

Met a man who interested me
He wrote great poetry you see
Said we'd meet and share some time
Maybe even have our bodies rhyme

Do You Know Who I Am?

Do you know who I am?
I am the dream you have not fulfilled
I am the nightmare you cant face
I am the speech you cant complete

Am I Jealous

I have feelings for you its true
Though we both agree
They will never be love
