Changing Face (Poem 78 of 99)

A bomb drops on a child overseas

He sculpts his nose thinner

Stories of a father raping his own daughter

He narrows the eyes and thickens the lashes

The poverty gap widens

He raises his cheekbones three millimetres higher

A world destroyed, a face ruined.

“If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself…
