Bleeding World - Poem by Saju Abraham

Who would you go after now
With Bin Laden gone?
A new enemy needs to be conceived,
to camouflage your nefarious plans.
Where will you wash all these blood away?
All the perfumes of Arabia won't suffice.

Monsters you make will hunt you down,
until you hunt them yourselves.
You set in motion the cycle of evil.
All you do is cut a loop,
the cycle keeps going.
The doves you release in holy streets,
turn into blood thirsty eagles and vultures.

Your intentions neutralize your actions.
The world don't need your celebrated charity.
An ounce of sensitivity coupled with peace,
that's all they ask of you.

You pride on being the leader,
it's time you justified your billing.
Shed the dark motives driving you.
The world don't know you wrong,
the world feel you do wrong.
