Noises of War.

by Jaq Cee

Cacophony Poem Contest Winner 

woooowooowoooowooo woooowooowoooowooo

I listen to the sirens
as they fill our war torn town.
Now it's time to hide ourselves
as the bombs come THUNDERING down.

The RAT-A-TAT-TAT sounds out loud
when the Ack-Ack fires its wares.
The WHOOSH and WHINE of armaments
pepper the sky with shells and flares.

woooowooowoooowooo woooowooowoooowooo

An air of silence permeates
as the aircraft's DRONE abates.
Now it's time to re-emerge
to the chaos war creates.
