Ukraine to Spain, Our World in Turmoil

By Susan Champion

BBC News photo of fighting in Ukraine

Somewhere in a Kiev basement

A mother cries out

Is there a bus leaving soon?

Is there a bus leaving soon?

Asks the child’s aunt

Our homes destroyed, nothing left

Our homes destroyed, nothing left

No food or water

How must we survive here now?

How must we survive here now?

Bombs fall night and day

Our streets consist of rubble

Our streets consist of rubble

Dear God save us now

Or we shall be swallowed whole

And in Spain

Rain washes pollen, hurrah!

Yellow cloud forms

Dust from Sahara descends

Covid rules lifted, hurrah!

Screens bring pictures of war

Potentially more deadly by far!
