There are no breaking news at the moment

Exile,
Or,
Home?
They asked,
Which home?
The one you bulldozed,
Or the one you occupied,
They are furious,
And,
Outraged,
Or, the one that is a rubble,
They look
They scare,
stay there,
Hands up,
How can I stay without name
Without face
Or without eyes.
Leave then,
Go in exile
They laugh
Or smirk,
How can I go in exile,
Without my umbilical cord,
That is buried here,
Or without funeral,
Who will come to my funeral in exile?
So?
Kill me here,
I wish for dignified funeral,
Then die,
They fire,
Enjoy big funeral.
