Pictures At An Execution

The faces of the children,
the faces of the children,
we try our best

to read their faces.
The war is indeed in their faces
ingrained like sand.

The men and women
are no different,
and though the women

have to cover their faces
you can still see it
in their cloth expressions.

But, the most telling tale
is in the eyes
of our own soldiers.

It doesn’t matter
what the higher ups
have taught them to say,

their hearts tell
another story,
a story told in body English.
