Steady the heavy cannon

prepares to release its load

The dark sky

abuzz with anticipation


In silence and

trailing wonder

The star is free

and travels the night


The aching cheeks

and broad smile

Reveal this shooting

a happy event


Steady the heavy cannon

prepares to release its load

The desert sky

numb with fear


In silence and

seeking destruction

The missile is free

and travels the night


The aching hearts

and fallen tears

Reveal this shooting

a sad event
