No Tomorrow Today! - Poem by Roland Cho

My heart leaps before these seas of human remains.
Is there nobody to stop it?
The scenes have been frequent and scary!
Nobody knows when it is coming,
But, everyone knows when it has come!

Nyos is a perennial memory!
Nsam, the nameless barbecue!
Iraq, the unnamed experimental slaughter field!
HIV, daughter of the queen of suffering!
Storms of all appellations, sweeping the sleeping! .
Tsunami, Wenchuan, … and then Haiti
Imposing their own town-planning schemes,
Or pop. control policies,
In the most horrendous of manners!

Some see in these the Prophesy in the Book,
Others see a hidden hand in these open laboratories.
Science blames it on human negligence…!
So, which way from here?
Is there no tomorrow today?
