Deflated

The oars turned at the pace

of the drums.

The beach sand was warm

between my toes.

Can hear the singing

fading into the marshes

the sound of gun fire

crying

and gun fire.

My brothers and sisters

fighting in a war

my war.

Can’t sail to battle

with holes in a boat

and only a single

oar.
