War, any kind of conflict has casualties

and so a recent memory reminds us

of Pearl and Hiroshima. Tons of bombs

dropped when there was nothing remaining

of strategic importance in Germany

or Japan except trade.

.

Troy knew the definition of seige. Men

pride-stripped inside no safety anywhere

concluded it was their turn. Defeat

is a hard way to create history.

.

Several hundred thousand refugee-asylum

labels risk lives to reach a new land.

More on are on the way to teach us

a new way to keep time and that history

has a long memory.
