Hands parched scratched from digging out tubers from hard earth
Tiny fingers frayed, a few swollen tender

The UN had tried to negotiate with,
The warring trespassers.
But alas! As anticipated,
The negotiations failed.

Berated, bruised and banged
Her vituperative outburst was slammed
For all her turmoil, she was jabbed and blamed
Her character was splintered and maligned
