In times of war when men of peace
Tank tracks are grinding up our city, our streets
Rockets tear through the cool morning air
From dust we're rebuilding, many long years
Crimes of war
A mother with tears in her eyes
An old man with a gramophone stares
Tank treads are grinding up our city

This image is by Joseph Eid, from "The music over the ruins of Aleppo" a March 15 2017 article he created for L'Agence France-Presse (AFP). I encourage you to visit and read it.
I cropped his photograph here for my own dramatic reasons.
