There once was a country that had experienced war. It was said to be ethnically & religiously fratricidal. All the words had been used. Everyone though they could narrow the edges of the conflict by pronouncing conclusive words, but always got entangled in the names of its people, its beliefs & its language. There were talks of a siege, a massacre and soon they used the word genocide. After four years of horror, the country was cut in halves. To settle the last ardors, the “Agreements” were signed and remained like an open wound in the country’s body.
The bleeding was too strong, the country fainted.
A strange and turbulent coma then begins.
It is no longer war, it is not peace yet.
It is this particular time called “post-war”.
