The Weeping Moon

Rating: 4.5
Witnessing the blood baths, the massacre
Of God’s people, children’s bodies everywhere,
And octogenarians expire slowly and quietly in horror.
The undistorted and the vivid images of terror,
The ugly realities of life for millions; what a rancor!
The large plumes of gray phosphorus smoke! There is nowhere
To hide. Showers of shrapnel, unprecedented heavy shellings,
White clouds of death and discriminating lynchings
Of everything that breathes, walks, runs and flies;
This is war, this is sheer terrorism! The God-flies;
Where are they when they are needed?

For some people, television is a medium that lends itself to passivity and detachment, perhaps because their hearts are closed to begin with. The ubiquity of hellish media reports has not rendered you numb. Your strong moral voice needs to be heard.

I agree with the logic of your words. I wonder if God is watching? Murdered children, hungry children and homeless people. Powerful words shared.

The ugly state of world affairs - man inhumanity to man, is insightfully captured in the poem. Profound piece of poetry with clarion call for universal brotherhood of man. Lovely poem indeed. Thanks for sharing Hebert.

Truly, terrorism and violent activities are ruining our existence on earth and we, humans, with the power of wisdom, claiming superiority over the animal kingdom act as inferior animals.

Pregnant women, their babies shredded By the wrecked fires of the big guns. Really globe should come out soon from such ism called terrorism....White or Black, state-sponsored or organised by hate to state-machinery. Terrorism should immediately be graved by any doctrine of cultivating love-power placing at its alter. High time to save civilization.
