                       The Camera

          The camera which was snapping
          Of children's corpses

          Was frightened by the horrible scenes.
          With confused steps, it retreated

          Heavy tears poured down

          From the lens.

                    Deeply Weeping

          The woman was deeply weeping

          Not for her lost husband
          Not for her demolished home either

          Nor for her wasted property . . .
          She was weeping

          Because her baby was crying nonstop
          From hunger,

          And the poor woman didn't have any
