Terrorism: War Of Today


TERRORISM, WA OF TODAY
mELVIN bANGOLLAY

This world we lived outlived many war
The war against nation's tyranny
Racial vindication for the weak country
Has made volumes of war history
Of terrorism against all humanity.

Today the war against terrorism
Still waging as a way of showing idealism
By some groups of people with dynamism
To take the lives of innocent victims
By the power of their goons extremism.

Everybody should be aware today
That terrorist knows no limit or boundary
To put the lives of many at their mercy
In their desire to see death everyday
As their joy and ultimate trophy of victory.

We should not let this be an act of patriotism
For the terrorist believes in this idealism
That to take the lives of Christians and Muslims
Is an act of greatness and noble living
For Allah or the Father God dislike this offering.

Along with all Poets in every land or country
I fervently appear to wage war against terror's fury;
I strongly believed that through our pen today
We can heal the wounds of war and tyranny
And light terrorist minds to stop their advocacy.

    This work, is spot-on in its philosophical & societal assessment.And i like your creative parade of ''isms'', that you astutely work into the poem. Not all, but most of today's most popular isms, (i have come to realize in my 49 years) refer to control-freak groups, spearheaded by Caligullaresque leadership.My translation (for a little lighthearted levity) on ISM, is that it stands for: I nane S ocietal M andate
    Great Write, Melvin!

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
