Civilization Capsized And They Carry In A Doggy Bag For The Doomsday - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

There are certain people those who say that side also good
While the boat overturns.
The whole world capsized in the void space
Make wars, but not casualty departments?
The pack of liars gathers and boasts their progress
What a shame?
This ridiculous world of rolled gold plump organizations
Sleeping in their dens, still unable to impose at least a word against the uncivilized, brutal war!

To all my poet friends for their unity!

    No hyperbole, nothing over the top. A fantastic title and a great imagery. Nimal, few can express anti-war sentiment without hysterics, but you certainly can and this is proof. The sign of a great artist my friend, will you ever put a foot wrong? This is such a measured and well constructed poem. The language is great; well put together in a non-commital manner; what I mean by that is that it is the woerd and not the sentiment that give the piece a nuetrality.

    It flows well in a magic sense and is one of your best because it is such a difficult poem to write and get right.
