Man Is Worse Than A Beast. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

The soldiers loot and rape the war victims.
They get this license from their victory.
Ruthless acts come from the worthy citizens!
You would do what they did were you they.

War atrocities go unchecked, unpunished.
Roman Empires did and Hitler men did.
Asoka the Great did; so did all winners.
Alexander the Great did; so all religions.

Where went morals, taught and learnt from scriptures?
Where went the virtues, fervently pursued?
Where went the conscience, brought up by the race?
Man turns worse than a beast when he can.

    An ugly truth you have presented boldly. The agony of these crime victims are beyond anybody's guess. Many crimes in the society go untried. Might decide their height. (Report) Reply
