Treasure Island

Abdul Wahab

<<<< 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

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
