The Sudan

That unknown village
Repugnant stage
A child killed
A mother raped
A father tortured
The whole world
Yet did nothing
Through silence
We all are accomplices

* This poem is dedicated to Judge Birtukan Mideksa and the Darfur people. Crying for Darfur was inspired by a BBC story of 1 June 2006.
