Children Of Iraq Poem by Shihabudheen K J

Children Of Iraq

Rating: 4.0

Aren't these children thy creatures Almighty?
They never resemble Palestinian descendents,
whose mothers solicited
thy wrath and anger in one span of history.
Why this hell Mr.Bush?
what repentance now?
No children's cradle ever in history been bombed down! No children's cry ever been recorded by spycams!
But you made it your signature?
To invade and keep in custody
those children's life worthy 'oil'.
No baby's palm been chopped off till date!
No baby's been ever this brutally arrested!
But you the world policeman passed
upon your congress this a 'v'symbol.
Ever heard the pain of their young mothers bleeding?
else this burning feed for their young mouths?
Still monopoly ruled thy christian empire!
Never your dictator recollect your 'war of independence '
the message of the Christ crucified.
The process resumes
you get nobel for peace
still you pain children!

Time speaks through the voice of the poet. Hard question never hurt the heart of the winner. Civilization perhaps weaved with such inhuman acts in disguise of humanity. Only poet and artist can filter it to communicate with the mass. Peace prize is less valuable than a peaceful writing where reflects the faces of commons. Thank you very much. Write more to knock.
