16 Nov 2015 – Come of Age

Syria, Lebanon, France,
Kenya, Nigeria – next?
Everybody takes a chance,
no one knows what to expect.

Afghanistan and Palestine,
peace passé, so obsolete!
Red Wahhabi Valentines
brightly bloom on every street.

Pick a flag to fly with pride.
Every choice reaps bitter rage –
so you might as well decide,
now the world has come of age.
