3 sufferinng occasioned by war

The theme of sufferinng occasioned by war ,
Much about war is suffering. the dinner itself is a dier of suffering war brings with it desert tongues, pepper, and scorpions.
The main suffering is gathering as if they are about to dine only to be feasted on “gun wounds”. The island made reference to is an island of suffering for the combatants but a real feast/ leisure arena fior the “gurrillas”
and the crocodies whic bask in the comfort of walking and surfing respectively

4 Child Soldiers

The theme of Child soldiers
The manner the poets brings in the fact that child soldier are also part of the ‘diner’ is to say “children from Alphabeta with empty palm dine/with us (line12-13) , Alphabeta probably a metapor for primary shoolig is abandoned by childern who proceed to the area of the dining, they come with sparks of bitterness in their eyes and “silence in their voice” (line 14). The playground has no children’s toy any longer since the children themselves have gone to war.
