Massacre of Cairo

Came the guns, raining down upon
The disaffected free,
And that was that, their denouement,
Who’s next to disagree?
Amongst the dead the children lay
Their politicking done.
The streets were their playground today
Beneath a soldier’s gun.
Serried lines of blood stained shrouds
Grow to fill the eyes
Rude remains of slaughtered crowds
Freedom’s sad demise.
