Tears Of The Sad Stars by Ahmad Al-khatat

Tears Of The Sad Stars

The other day;
I wore my
Victorian suit
and I poured
myself a
cup of
English tea.
As I take
my first sip,
I saw a giant
Viking ship,
sinking quickly.
In seconds
was calm
as if nothing
but a flying
dragon was
eating the
cold moon.
the cookie
monster was
eating the
cookies of
the kids
who died in the
Viking ship
my cup was
not filled with
tea instead
it was filled
with tears
of the
sad stars.
