Nightmare

A living nightmare,
With sounds of buzzing,
And painful stings.

I shall always be there,
Too hold you.

Congratulations Germany?!

I’m primarily an Italian football fan, but tend to also appreciate and like Germany’s team play and defense.

So of course I was cheering on for the German team throughout the night.

But at the same time I was half wishing they’d loose, not for the sake of Argentina, but more that of Lebanon.
You see looking back at the history of Germany winning world cups I noticed asomething common in the dates and the lebanese history.

In 1974, Germany won the world cup, a couple of days later trouble started sparkling up all around Lebanon, and before you know it, we had a 15 year civil war raging on and destroying the country:

The second time Germany won the world cup, was in 2006, the year israeli bombs were destroying all bridges around the country after first targeting the airport; and instilling fear in the crowds:

Now how do these link all my fears together? Simple:

A couple of minutes after the end of the 2014 World Cup games ending with Germany taking the world cup once again, a news update arrived:

LBC Lebanon News, Urgent Update

“Israel responds to the two missiles sent from Lebanon’ s Raas El Ain with many rockets launched onto Khirach Al Hanya and Al Aazariyah…”

That was fast…. so here we go again or will we defeat our sour fate?

Nightmare

As I gaze upon the trees,
A nightmare in disguise,
Suddenly appears.
Blood shot red eyes,
Brown horns to fit the bill,
An owl in the trees.

Bee

My sting is painful,
And hard to handle.
But my pride for you,
Is Life’s golden joy.

One

Open your heart to nature,
And she shall do the same with you.
