                                                    Weapons of Mass Destruction
                                                                         (c) 2003 Dorothy Lykes


Young men
heard drums,
marched away
leaving children


who in their youth
heard drums
kissed wives
and marched
leaving fatherless

children . . .


Desert sand melts
into green glass.
Other greens:
glacial ice
ocean depths
spring hills
red-headed children's
and Christmas trees.


Winking stars,
the eyes of sky,
witness evolution
from primal animal
       to man.

Suspecting man's final acts
nature moans a wind
a cello seizes
and plays.

The sky is moved
to shed a hurricane.
