Complicit Silence - Poem by Omar Osman Jabak
They say silence gives consent.
It is true especially of a tyrant.
When people obey his evil deeds,
And rival to please his sinful needs,
He then parts with the human soul,
And answers only his rapacious call.
If they keep their disgraceful silence,
He goes beyond any viable riddance.
He is not to blame for his massacres
As they granted him god-like powers.
It takes God to bring him down,
And rid the people of his crown.
