My War - Poem by Sayeed Abubakar

I won't come back my home
till the rapists I slay
in Delhi, New York, Rome
any place where they stay.

My war against those beasts
who love my mother's meat
who together make feast
with her body and eat.

I am in battlefield,
like Hercules I roam.
till the rapists are killed
I won't come back my home.

    Yes, evil has to be wiped out, what happened to that girl in Delhi was shockingly evil!
    This is a great poem full of anger, disgust putting across so powerfully the message
    that these rapists have to die!

    Agreed with Valsa. Kill the sin but not the sinner.... But how? This will go on until human has this need. I don't know whether I am realistic or I have lost hope. one thing I am sure about this sin will remain there until human have this urge.

    This was a strong protest and I share the same. Well Written

    I don't know about that Valsa. The vigilante My business is killing and business is good could be useful assuming that Hercules here wasn't caught. Go Hercules! (Report) Reply

    Great resolution, but too impulsive! ! Killing is no solution to any problem! ! Those miscreants should be subjected to slow and endless suffering to learn what extent of suffering they caused to their victims! Any way your Herculean spirit is admirable! (Report) Reply
