BREAKING THE CHAINS  < 25 of 61 >


Dawn Mists

Apocalypso

In the night while we slept
the bombs fell on Tripoli
and up in the Four Horsemen's stables
the grooms lay awake

wondering if this was another fire drill
or if this was the real thing at last


After the bombing raid on Colonel Gadaffi in Libya in 1986.
