Tiannamen Square - Poem by RAVIKIRAN ARAKKAL

The square of men and women,
Mao tse tung the erstwhile
Dictator smiled in glee
At the red flags abounding it,
With people in China
In long lasting red dictatorship
Of the remannants of red army,
The chiefs most powerful
In the world, causing
The students to rise and summon
In the square, who were
mercilessly shot down
In minutes, numbering
Three thousand to make
One of the mass massacre,
In one place in modern times,
But futile were their attempts,
Only to culminate to make
A President in american style,
More powerful, but a dictator,
The most powerful in the world,
In the name of communism,
And the red rebellion
Which he did not participate,
But made his posion,
Through political manouers,
Making china reel in poverty
In the rural areas about whom,
The Beijing red leaders don't care.
