Home Front

At home,
people are waiting.
People like you and me, only…
they are home and we are here.

At home,
People are afraid,
afraid to watch the news,
to answer the telephone
in case it is not you or I.

At home,
we will sit quietly,
wondering why it was not us,
while they try to understand
why we watch TV news and say nothing.
