A terrible beauty

entry picture

Six months now since the slaughter

On the 22nd May 2017 at an Ariana concert

22 murdered, 116 with injuries they'll carry

All their lives. The target, the young and carefree.


Before, I loved the rainy mornings of my life

And I never thought that friendly mountain passes

Would ferry me away

But  now happy times are seldom

And the rain runs away with me.


From holiday beach to temptestous sea

The thunder clouds gather like swarms of angry bees

I have lost my faith in the indomitable sea.

And I have lost my faith in humanity

I sing only one song now

'Protect the young and defend the free.'


O! the mechanical movement of the sun

Sunshine blooms and nectar spreads

Like a tender tree

Covering  all that's dappled, fair

Like a changeling, like the sea and unlike me.
