ANNOUNCEMENTS


Eyes of the dead
lashes veiled...

tongues now silent
severed into...

People hanging
from branches broke...

House doors now shut
the city is closed...

Yet they are saying
liberty proclaimed...

    this poem describes the opression of a dictatorship, from what i have found this powerful poem simply describes what the dictators of our world are truly doing not what they say they are doing. (Report) Reply
