Rivers of Blood

It's flowing again,
This rivers of blood,
Bright red with dirt and mud,
Now overflowing its banks.

It's source from slaughtered infants, children and women,
Helpless civilians...
murdered by the raining bombs,
from aeroplanes, thunderous howitzers and blazing tanks,
screaming! ...nowhere to run, nowhere to escape,
These merciless slaughter, from an evil state.

They watch and cheer from a distance,
Their murderous fireworks days and nights.
Sipping cold champagne and beers,
While the brave and martyrs struggled and fight,
and the weakest prayed in trembling fright.

Illusion of peace, abscence of justice…
The silenced and heartless world must again watch,
This rivers of blood that flows again and again,
In the land of prophets,

    A very sad reality.
    We were created with brains, why the killers do not use them
    We were created with hearts, why the killers do not use them
    We were created with soul, why the killers do ignore soul and spirit
    Good poem, a super 10 (Report) Reply

    Insensible people...world. Its seems so ironic,
    one side we say sorry for silly things,
    other side we never feelsorry for violence
    specially against vulnerable, , , women, children.
    Nice effort to wake up people sir. (Report) Reply

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
