Srebrenica

11 Jul

New poem ‘Srebrenica’ on the 20th anniversary of the massacre.

Srebrenica
is a tale we tell,
Of the depths to which Europe fell.

Srebrenica,
where neighbours once lived side by side,
Committed bloody genocide.

Srebrenica
Slaughter in a ‘safe place’
A mark of blood and disgrace.

Srebrenica
Remains a fork in the road.
Do we have the courage to tolerate
to ensure it
never
happens
again?
