DER ZOR DRONES ON By Bedros Afeyan April window invites judgment towards our pied past Haunting sounds of summers lost Hopes dug in bloody sand dunes of inscribed pride Endless chains of moaning caravans Melting into balls of fury for injustice left undone 87 monsters greeted parliaments in Europe recognizing Armenian loss Hands meager in destiny yet warm in culture's clutch resound the denials Diminished returns of Kurd killing battalions flashing Western leaning pretences Endless in shame of lust for crusted victories over the unarmed and unwashed. May we stand in defiance and overwhelming odds Withstand the crafted lies and million dollar PR facades May each April bring the cherry blossoms to Halls of Justice In whispers of children marching in Der Zor With a knowing wind's undying rebellion against distortions and gloss. -- Dr. Bedros Afeyan is a theoretical physicist who works and lives in the Bay area with his wife, Marine. He writes in Armenian and in English and also paints and sculpts. Samples of his work can be found on the web by clicking on his personal web pages at: http://18.104.22.168/
