** The Fever Of Terrorism **

Rating: 4.3

The contingent of virus
hidden in Trojan horse, Anopheles
breach the frail armour of epithelium.
Now intruders march in veins,
Some suicide bombers
sail in a boat of cells
Die and release
deadly chemical weapons.
The ever-faithful white cells
are ready to fight invasion.

The feverish battle ensues

This reads (to me) like Revelations or Nostradamus' quatrains. I know that ideology is blamed for the war of cultures, but poverty and deprivation are the true perpitrators. All of this for an illusion explained in a religious context and religion has very little to do with it at all. I got alot from this, thanks for sharing.

The bands of terrorists break the defense of moral values, travel on a road of fanaticism and cruise in a ship of animosity - these are unforgettable and picturesque lines ever written by a poet.. The poetess here feels about the Armageddon....

The Trojan Horse was used for retrieving the lost honour and the stolen wife Helen! These terrorists and fundametalists have no such aim! They serve the devil and are inhumane! We all will be writing for a long time about them! For your poem 10! - Raj Nandy
