Ripples Of Blood - Poem by Isaac Maliya

Ripples of blood leave
The scarlet pigmentation
Flattened habitation
The show of triumphalism
The waving of victory flags!

Ripples of blood drain
From scattered anonymous limbs
Of enemy fighters, women, kids
Oceans of tears of desperation
Nowhere to sit, nor sleep, nor eat

Ripples of blood create
Orphans, widows and widowers
Of the defeated, of the triumphant
Seeds sawn of hatred
Embryos of future war
Incessant ripples of blood!
