Heartless People - Poem by victoria mbali

What do you call a person who repeatedly rape an innocent 5 months old child
What do you call a person who beats up his wife that she wakes up in hospital every month/day
What do you call a person who steals from homeless
What do you call people who kill innocent unborn and born babies
Flushing them by toilets
Squeezing with bin bag plastics till their little lungs can no longer inhale
Giving their embryos to dogs to feed
What do you call people who kill 5 million people only for power, ruling, colonising, killing them physically and emotionally

This apple that we live in rots everyday
Because of the terrible seeds implanted everyday
This is Adams and Eves apple that we live in

The good seeds have to pay for their sins

What happened to their hearts?
