But I can' I will cry instead

Just another statistic

The fifth president to authorise air-strickes on Iraq

A long awaited family reunion 

A week of frantic angry calls

A conversation with the foreign office

Just another statistic on the list

Plans and counter plans

A belligerent kurd refusing to descend from the mountain

A seven year old oblivious we hope

I would like to take control, to sort it all out

Protect her from becoming another statistic

But I can't

So I will protect him by a news ban and my silence

And imagine the worst in private
