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...

    well it dose show how hard out leaders are trying to be but were not perfect and the are trying to keep order in the world so this poem is ok i mean i think it was just words rhyming and saying how much you hate the order our leaders have set but hey thats just me! (Report) Reply

    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
