Hands II

And  the world changes
           because the hands
           are different hands
           because the children of the war
           are unaware
           there is no law for all ...
           and the neat will die
           and the untidy heads
           spill out along the island -
           unplanned, unsung, unidolised .
           there will be no heroes now.
