Visiting A War Museum

In Shimmering Heat I Sweated, Then Slipped
Into The Cool Of A War Museum At Ru. Guards
Sat Around Half The Day, Watching Visitors
Go From One Gallery To Another, Myself Awestruck
How The Seventies Turmoil, Rapes And Killings
During My Land’s Labour Pains Came Alive

On The Things Kept, Telling What The Monsters,
As Qumrul Painted Them, Did. Rifles, Exploded
Shells & Grenades I Saw, And The Martyrs’

Skulls & Bones Neatly Arranged In Glass-Boxes
And The Display: I Looked At A Nation’s Birth-
Certificates & Newspaper Clippings In Surprise!

A Bit Of The Life As It Was Lived By Millions.
I Heard The Authority Deserves Praise! The Sweat
Felt Like Refrigerated Cold, Getting Me

Frosted Over In Fear Of What I Might Shoulder.
Then I Stood With My Eyes Glued To A Black-
N-White Still Take: Brush-Fired A Mother

With Her Child’s Head Poking Out Of The Womb –
The Conspiracy’s Win Over A New Life! I Wondered
Whether We All Are Like The Child Dead At Birth
