PHAN THI KIM PHUC

You have forgiven us
Your fragil body
Runing naked
Stood in my mind

For years the picture
Has been fixed in my retine
Behind the infernal dust
That burn your body half

Nic Ut save your body half
Save your image
For the world to see its crime

I still don't understand
Why
Man has created war
Still it crucifis

Tiny body
Open mouth
Arm flappening horizontally
Behind
In front
In the center you
The Christ

Behind the lost city
Soldiers
In command of the Chief
Make the image
Of Sodoma and Gomorre

And still
The world goes on
The same crime
For ever and ever
Amen

Phu Thi
you are thirty three
Now

And you can to forgive us
