Poetry Corner: “Mama Bravo strikes again”

Mama Bravo strikes again

Laughing gaily they take their seats
out of the hostile winter freeze to enjoy the cheap rum of sunny Cuba
the plane hurtles down the runway
passengers getting ready for those free drinks
BUT!
snap, crackle pop
like steel rice crispies

No time for a scream
what’s left of the bodies
lies steaming in a field
and looks like stewed tomatoes dropped from the Empire State Building
on a cold winter day
