Each day we are presented

with the media’s opinions

of what is newsworthy.

We try to sieve truth

from distortion and distraction.

We try to respond rather than react

At this moment of 2016,

ten days before Christmas,

one truth filters through clearly.

A call that resounds like a church bell

over hill and valley.

Aleppo Aleppo Aleppo

Some gulfs are too wide to straddle.

The gulf between our grandchildren

waiting for Christmas

and the children of Aleppo

waiting for bombs
