Prompt: unseen, street, corners, boxes, victims, innocence, shell, ghostly, passerby
Ghostly echoes reverberate
over the airwaves
and across the internet,
body bags
have become the symbols
of a new holocaust
and ethnic cleansing
the political correct term
for genocide.

In towers of steel and glass,
unseen snipers wait,
while on the street corners of extinction
innocence victims gather,
their shell-shocked eyes
staring at equally numbed passerby's.

In forest across the planet,
the Grim Reaper destroys trees,
and builds burial boxes
for the dead.

Line Count: 19
Form: Free style with some rhyme.
Prompt Words: unseen, street, corners, boxes, victims, innocence, shell, ghostly, passerby
