as a voiceless world
evacuate these fields
hush its people
with restrained violence
strike them dumb
’til they are voiceless,
their children curbed
into unsociable restraint

Due to technical difficulties (the bloody laptop died and is still dead) I was VERY late getting the letter S up – too late in fact. But in keeping to my plan I have written a letter S poem.
I got an award for this poem!!!
Thank you Thursday Poets Rally for the Perfect Poets Award
I nominate RoughWaterJohn the Pirate for the next award
