Men In T-Shirts

smoke encroaches the sky
men gather
by the barricades
gunfire rattles
a chattering fear,
they move in groups
seem aimless powerless
what to do
to call , to chant
to pray,
to unify,
and hope together
will survive
tank wheels
closer now,
fear a sharpened
swordswinging ever closer
do you hide
or call and shout
