Stench..

via Daily Prompt: Filthy

Air is dark and heavy with the
stench of humans
Dying in the hands of race
and caste

Walls painted red,
streets marked with terror
Roads filthy with rotting bodies
Oh I smell hell..

Was it the little girl whose anguished cry
is ringing inside my ears?
Was it my brother whom I watched die or
was it the whole of humanity?
