Genocide Harvest Who Is Accountable? - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)
Where ends group responsibility?
Where does individuality begin?
With conscience fear resistant soul?
Who is immune to arrest torture reprisal?
Where each tyrant ominous threat individual
bids for absolute genocide oppressive power?
Dictators gain sly tongue platform support
feeding upon base despicable character trait
with followers revenge seeking cruel brutal?
Who is dictator bank rolled elected accountable
for crimes committed nipped at bid source easily?
Armenian Genocide Rwandan Genocide time forgot...
absorb images of genocide racial indignity
committed on horrific barbaric harvest scales
not to care not to protest stop crimes indicts;
humanity will be judged not on technology
heightest attained by so called civilized society
but on indifference to crimes innocent lives lost...
