modern crime

400,000 people are dead

2 million people have been displaced

more are dying every day

this isn’t poetry

this isn’t prose

this isn’t art

this is criminal

this is sudan and it is happening now

now in the dust and the dirt

underneath an unforgiving sun

watched by an uncaring world

our world

400,000 people are dead.

we have quite a few Sudanese students where I work and you can see what you describe in their eyes - stark, real, no poetry.
