<<<< Criss -Cross

Neither all Christians are Americans
Nor all Muslims are Arabians
In Arabian Peninsula there are Christians
In the land of America there are Muslims, too
Criss -crossing nations
Criss-crossing races
Religion is mere a feather
Adorning the crown of your belief
When a European kills a white Muslim
Or an Asian kills a black Christian
They are killing whom?
They are killing their own race
When a monk of Sri-Lanka kills a Sri-Lankan Muslim
Or a Christian of Burma kills a Burmese monk
Whom do you think they are killing?
They are killing their own nation
When a catholic kills a protestant
Or a Shia kills a Sunni
Or a dalit is killed by a Brahman
They are killing none
But their own religious people
But what do you say
When Osama Bin Laden or Hitler
Or a Zion kills?
They kill human beings
Their own species
Killers are insane
A menace of mankind
Threatening their own existence
Think man think
Think hard
Or be ready to be perished
