Beauty and the Borg

The Borg Poet had an opportunity to meet with Nazanin Afshin-JamNazanin and Us.. She is President and Co-Founder of Stop Child Executions. Her uniqueness was not added to our own, but her impression upon us will remain for some time.

As tribute to one who remains outside: a poem

Treading water

not alone

a world away
straw floor beaten
cold

living to fight
living for the right
alive another day
forgotten children of the revolutionary war

history cries
it folds
and the cleric sleeps
while children pour out their lives
from above the hangman’s pole

warm hand
reaching
breaking
pleading

the world is silent to the scream
