The Streets of Syria

A quick overview of events around the world

Five thousand were killed in Syria

In August alone.

Assad, their president and an optometrist, is in love with his wife

And goes shopping to make her happy

Often on-line.

A UK university still call to boycott Israel.

Assad does not live in the UK any more.

The Arab world blames Israel

They must have planned it all along

Especially the failure of the UN

To stop the bloodshed.

The same UN that appointed Libya

To head the Human Right Commission.

Barbara, my neighbor, is truly upset

Her favorite chocolate is out of stock

And will probably never be in again.

The small shop that made it

Is being digested by a giant

And their secret recipe, that was in the family for generations

Is substituted.

But the children in Syria would have loved a piece

At least those who are not among the five thousand

Who do not mind how inedible it has become.

I don't even know what to say about these kind of realizations anymore. Its like you are damned if you do and damned if you don't when it comes to this madness.

Both strong opinions and ignorance are dangerous. I believe that if more people knew more what is happening, but where willing to admit that they don't have a solution, we would have a much better starting point to work from.
