The Murder (Benazir Bhutto)


It happened last evening
Here, in my city
Near my home....
Murder.
They've killed her...

It is unbelievable!
I cannot put my hand on it
and grasp it with my fingers

The entirety is indigestable...
They've murdered her....
and I am not a zealot,
but wasn't She the very best we had?
...and they've killed her

what the future holds for us?
I know not....
I know not....

(today is Friday, December 28,2007..... Yesterday evening,27th december, former Pakistani prime minister and one of the most prominent leaders, Benazir Bhutto, was assassinated while she was leaving a political rally in Rawalpindi...She was fired upon, and it was followed by a suicide bomb blast....She died, ultimately, from the bullet wounds to her neck)

    She was a beautiful, well educated, intelligent woman who was about to take power in the world. She was an example for women everywhere, as a Muslim woman, she had great courage. It is a miracle she lasted as long as she did. Let us all hope that her death will propel the world forward toward higher ideals. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
