And as always, the news is tragic in Iraq...Again, it happened in 3urooba Square..and hasn't that always been the case, ya 3arab?
when i was torn by war
i took a brush
immersed in death
and drew a window
on war’s wall
i opened it
searching for
i saw another war
and a mother
weaving a shroud
for the dead man
still in her womb
By The Iraqi Poet Sinan Antoon
And it gets worse and worse...
