a compass aims at mecca
But the prayers seem not to be heard over fulminations of war
Bloody father stains the prayer carpet
and sons bloody hands scream
"Oh Dad!, may god help you! Please don't leave me!"
But he's gone.
"There is no god but Allah,
and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah"
reads across a dark mask
But no mask is dark enough to hide the sins of murder.
