ANJALI SINHA

** The Fever Of Terrorism **

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
Body reverberates
Bathes in perspiration’s lake.

The bands of terrorists
break the defense
of moral values,
travel on a road
of fanaticism
and cruise in a
ship of animosity
Die and release
the deadly venom of hate.
The warriors with guns of peace
are ready for righteous combat
The bloody Armageddon ensues
The Earth quakes
Bathes in blood filled lakes.

    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

    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.

    You write with courage and conviction.
    Perhaps we will never see the end of
    terrorism. But we can attempt to
    make peace across all barriers of
    color, culture, and countries dreaming
    of that time when as the old song says, '..the lights go
    on again all over the world.' Superb message.
    10/10.

    Love,

    SandraX

Your wondrous poetic talent is vividly on display here for all readers to marvel at, and the message of your exceptionally fine poem is very pertinent in today's world. Carl.
