Rookie - 46 Points (14 APRIL / SAHIWAL)

Often I think and oft I see

Often I think and oft I see
The alien clutches, I want to flee
I can not wait and can not rate
Ins and outs of, this troubled debate
Who is terrorist and who pacifist
Who are supporting and who resist?
World wide phenomena of destruction
For purpose only to ensue reconstruction
To occupy the resources, oil and energy
To maintain monopoly and keep hegemony
Limbs are being cut, like tree boughs
Corpses are piled up in many rows
No one to burry, no one to weep
No one to cover them no one to heap
The clash of civilization this was not
But the power hungry has it brought
The end seems farther and gruesome
Of this brutality, foul and fulsome
No one is ready every one stubborn
Not letting to live the world citizen

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
