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...
...Is that my name?
Call me cat and and
call me if you find my name.
Who are you to speak of love,
Who let evil men steal our land
Spill our blood upon the soil
Crush our bones into the sand
The seas are mined
Their stories filled with history.
Sardine-like in the rocking boats
