1793



France has declared a national state of emergency and tightened borders after at least 128 people were killed in a night of gun and bomb attacks in Paris.
Eighty people were reported killed after gunmen burst into the Bataclan concert hall and took hostages before security forces stormed the hall.
People were shot dead at restaurants and bars at five other sites in Paris. At least 180 people were injured
These are the deadliest attacks in Europe since the 2004 Madrid bombings

surreal drama -
blood the price for a ticket
of loss dreams

veins of wrath -
the blood of innocents salts
tears again

peace peace -
when will words of harmony
ring true

It is surreal when such events unfold - and yet also familiar...terrorism exists in various forms every single day, sadly - a reflective and thoughtful poem

Sigh... hope and pray for peace to prevail soon and for an end to terrorism. Horrible what happened in France.

Had been a sad day for humanity. Elements that start a chain reaction are signs showing us of some mismatch in expectations

We are a step beyond surreal, which seemed to stay on stage and in art galleries. Your poem, from the heart, phrases the question, but as a rhetorical statement. When indeed. We lose proportion and hope.
