Prisoner

The bombs go off outside
The people run
and the helpless find aid
in the compassionate

The bombs go off inside
and the devastation
goes unnoticed

The hostage is silenced
The prisoner is slapped
The outside world smiles
at the pretty building

until it collapses
then they cluck
tut tut what a shame
what a terrible inhabitant

Intervene

Come and gather round
The clock is ticking
without a sound
I fly by
unnoticed

Intervene
I'm standing here
waiting
Come between
me

The clock is hammering
confusion
upon me a rhythmic
contusion

Intervene
