Tank tracks grind through our city and streets
Rockets tear through the cool morning air
Enough stories of stone and stories of steel
From dust we're rebuilding, decades will pass
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.
