Paris To Cairo

Folder: 
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.
