Defused Dilemma

Defused Dilemma is a poem about stopping what could have been a frightful situation before things get out of hand.
Land mine company G4s and the UN Mine Action Service – UNMAS, are racing against time to defuse a fifty-kilogram aircraft bomb, which is found 1.8 kilometers northwest from the Juba International Airport in an area between Mangateen and Hai referendum in Juba. A soldier, who requested UNMAS to remove the explosive hazard, discovered the rusty, old cylinder like object measuring almost one meter long on 14th Jan. 2019. The deminers will defuse the bomb between 5:30 and 6:30pm on 16th Jan. 2019 for safe removal and is advising the public to remain calm in case of any loud explosion. UNMAS has worked in coordination with the relevant national authorities and UNMISS to conduct this operation. The experts are constructing a sand protection barrier, up to 50 tons, around the bomb to counter against the effects of an unplanned detonation. The Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of the United Nations Mission, David Shearer, is expected to be present at the disposal of the bomb on afternoon to highlight the important work that UNMAS does as an integral part of UNMISS to protect communities across South Sudan. Mr. Richard Boulter, UNMAS South Sudan Programme Manager, will also be on site. UN Photo: Isaac Billy

Defused Dilemma

Jack came for a day, Jill stayed for a week;
They rode it out like a fading hot streak.
Caught off guard by thirty dogs;
Rolling down a river on top of logs.
It morphed from a problem small
And became a dilemma rather tall.
We worked all night as time ran out;
First the blue, then red we slowly cut.
Before we knew it time stood still
And Jack and Jill rolled down the hill.
