Our collection of anti-war poetry written to help raise awareness of the conflict in Syria and inspire a peaceful outcome.
Guest poem from Heathcote Williams entitled “This is for Syria” following the stabbing at Leytonstone station.
No, this is not a broken doll.
This is one of many a child.
Killed in a children’s hospital.
In the cradle of the civilised west
he wrests his baby from the twisted mess...
The seas are mined
Their stories filled with history.
Sardine-like in the rocking boats
