Into the dragon's belly they streamed
seeking hands, faces, voices and finding only dust,
and smoke that choked the soul,
but amplified lost hearts...

Families harsh engulfed inside an hour
father, mothers, children now no more,
begging silent that a word be taken back
presented, folded, to their left behind...

And do we not hear those voices call us still,
whisp'ring that a larger dragon must yet be slain,
a dragon of eternal hate and pain
that yearns to devour us all...
