Rookie - 12 Points (Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)

Another Bloody Day.


Indiscriminate killing.
Gunmen not willing to compromise aims.
Aiming at anyone running or staying
Around to get in their way.

Blood terrifying.
Poor victims lying in pools, dying.
Stray bullets flying, screams crying
For help on this dreadful day.

Instead of sighing
And then walking away what about
Shouting en-masse, and aloud
To Leaders for action - now!

Guns cause villifying.
Terror never made peace,
Blood only vividly increases
The calls for revenge.

Hearts need unbending
Before blood floods more days.
Let's mourn bloody days deeper
Maybe then will peace
Be allowed to speak.

Remembering Mumbai.

    Fay..As long as men continue the persuit and maintenance of power over people and resources, we will advance no further.Bigotry, intollerance and blind following of inane doctrine should be exposed as the imposters they really are,

    Dear Fay
    A marvellously evocative piece reflecting the outrage of us all regarding the latest infamies - this time in India. I hope there will be peace on earth somewhere this christmas. I feel and share your anger and frustration over this latest spate of needless violence in these superbly wriiten verses. (Report) Reply

    Senseless, Horrific, Bestial...yet more shockingly...something most of the world (I.M.O.) was notshockingly surprised upon hearing the news that terror had once again struck innocence dead, on God's planet.
    New York, Washington, China, Russia, Spain, India...there are no boundaries, there is no fear, especially of retribution, as these cowardly acts, are (sadly) being carried out by those who have no respect for their own lives....and even more twistingly, in many of these terroristic attacks, the players actually believe that their martydom wil be rewarded with eternal nirvana, or whatever their so-called heaven be called.
    Excellent work, on a very abhorrent event, Fay. Sorrowfully brilliant penning!

    A good write Fay on something which hurts to write. Where has their humanity gone, blocked by a miasma of evil thoughts. Bob (Report) Reply
