CALAMITY


A huge crowd
Two salvators
One is the Ghost
And the other is ses

Millions of homelesses
Thousands are wounded
Lucky guys escaped
By the cool hands of the death

Tankers moves easily
Over the red flesh field
with their flag victory

Colourful refugee tanks
Food packets and blankets
Smiling redcross birds
Doctors drip and strip

Lens and pen medias
Day and night Coverages
analysis expert views
endless conclusions

It is not natural disaster
But a calamity in the Brain
One hand gave weapons
And the other holds food

    This is how to share with the ongoing turmoils
    Your writeup takes the reader direct into that zone.

    Endless fights, reasons, seasons all pre-set
    Man-made tragic, no end seen.

    A poem of every seasons with its reasons. (Report) Reply

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
