UKRAINE, ISRAEL-PALESTINE, MANIPUR ON MY MIND

 


UKRAINE, ISRAEL-PALESTINE,

MANIPUR ON MY MIND

 

-         Bina (India)

 

 

once again

another war

the tanks rolled out

 

the canons raged

once again

peace is slayed.

 

once again

soldiers die 

civilians die

despots dictate

with evil egos~

holocaustian hate.

 

once again

a game of chess

with brutal moves

is ruthlessly played

once again 

the pawns are snared.

 

once again

“they” are blind~

blind and deaf

and mute;

sailing in a sea of lies

they will not dispute.

 

once again

the blood of war

will be etched

in reams of history.

 

once again

our lack of learning

will remain a mystery.
