Merciless Breed - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

A helpless father
Crying in front of his son
Both being refugee
At a camp
Where life is at mercy
Of others
Who blame and hate
For fear of resources
And the notion they carry
As they may be terrorist
Such is the condition
Element of doubt is reason
For hatred
Developed countries so called
Behave like underdeveloped ones
Can spend billions on
Exploring the possibility of life on mars
Whereas the life on earth
This is miserable for some
They pay no heed
This is today’s humanity
And this is present breed.

    I think that one day humanity may need to colonize Mars, but in the mean-time, untold billions go to defense departments for armies and war while even a fraction of that money could help the needy. Shame on the USA and all powers whose budgets are vastly apportioned for death (Report) Reply
