Modern Arrow


blood smeared hands

Crying, brother on his shoulder
Blood smeared T-shirt gives tongue-
That something went awry "Oh! Mother"
"Li'l bro's not saying a thing"
"I wanted to hear him sing"
Never to be heard is the voice young.

"Oh God! what have you done?"
Mother voiced her sorrow
"We were playing, having fun"
"I last saw brother jumping-"
"Our favorite song he was singing"
Silenced by the modern arrow.

Mother!! Prepare thyself-
Another bullet awaits your son.
Brother!! Get new T's for yourself
Or tell li'l bro to dodge the gun.
