LATE AUGUST

    Late August

Dog days
               Coming to a head…
Feet in new shoes
               Walking to school
America’s children dream
               Of a silent warm bed
At a distance you hear screams
                In the noisy playground
Meanwhile…
                Halfway around the world
The fruits of war ravage empty classrooms.
