Human wrongs

Human Wrongs (Chernobyl 25th Anniversary) W.Sony

Radiation is good for you
The soldiers joked
At the roadblock
Chewing on bread
Made from
Ukrainian wheat
Facing the sun
Warm rays
As they pose
For a photograph
She’s another tourist
Fine powdered dust
On the piano
On the children’s toys
In the groundwater
In the stillness of the lake
To be a human right
Or to be a human wrong
We move into the light
And then we are gone
And the charges against them
will not be withdrawn

they believe
all the green grass was burned
and the trees turned red
in the prophecy
of the fallen star
from the heavens
a great mountain of fire
burns like a lantern
on the rivers and the sea
and the angel says
“woe to the inhabiters of the earth”
To be a human right
Or to be a human wrong
We move into the light
And then we are gone
And the Charges Against them
will not be withdrawn

Her camera comes loose
Falls down the stairs
Where the families had rushed
No time to pack
Orders to leave
and the soldiers never smiled
at the roadblocks wearing gas masks
a third part of the sun
was covered by the clouds
