I HATE TERMITES

I hate all termites by heart,
Though they manage to balance
The earth's true ecology
By eating all that is dead!

There are termites that eat you
While you're alive, like burglars,
Thieves, fanatics, terrorists,
And exploiters who make
Our lives much miserable!

Those who try to take by force
Another's body, wealth or life
Are mere termites to be killed
For the sake of the unfit!

Those who shot down the Coptics,
And beheaded Ethiopians,
Are mere unwanted termites
To be soon terminated!

Cain, the termite, was the first
Who murdered his own brother
In cold blood, and he believed
That forever he could survive!

In vain are our hopes and dreams
We compete for survival,
How long could one live on earth,
One day we all will vanish!
