Paris To Cairo

Vintage Words


Thousands of flights

and no mishaps, the boarding

without a hitch. Sixty-six 

content passengers went down

and, like the unsuspecting

crew, will not see home or

hearth again.


The Mediterranean Sea's

depths have hosted ships

since ships first bravely sailed.

The terror of going down, in

each doomed mind, will

equal screams and prayers

desperate for salvation.


The Airbus died in time and

terror. Human inattentiveness

sabotage, bad luck. Disbelief 

demands a cause. The living

demand an answer.


The search light swings to 

illumine pain. The arrival

gate  is crowded with grief

that stirs every heart who

hears report of another

plane gone down.
