    Drone 5th Nov. 2017



    Unsought in a quiet sky,

    reading thought in propinquity,

    this Guardian Angel from afar

    chains Armageddon in Hellfire.

    Now the sparrow's fall

    is simply collateral.

    On target with this missive, Johntee! I don’t know whether it is a good or bad thing that this topic came to the fore as a muse for your poem, but you expressed it well.

      Thanks Muttado, I find it unsettling
      when news seems to follow
      imaginations flow.

      Once Hizbollah is finished
      acting as Iran's surrogate in Syria they can
      return home to liberate Lebanon.
      That seems to be what the Saudi's fear
      from the way they are acting.

      Over the weekend the U.S. Air Force
      in a crawling News strapline
      announced 3 drone strikes.

      A blank sky
      and blank mind
      combined.

    Brilliant allusion, image, and phrasing, Johntee. Hurts as it should.

      I couldn't remember if it's the Devil
      that originates the the Sparrow line.

    I agree - a lot of punch in a few words.
