Death of Humanity

Take my daughter
She is safe with you
Out of this country
Weeping Mother
threw her two year old
In the arms of a stunned soldier
evacuating her Country


Anorher baby
they have just found
in the waiting lounge
not knowing
Whose baby is this
ten month old
forgotten behind
In the sea of
Frightened people
All alone
left to defend themselves!


Fallen Angels cry
‘Is there anybody
to save us
from our own people
and their misguided believes.’


This wallowing cry
falling short on deaf ears-

‘Blinded by the greed of power
and hungry for blood
They are ready to shoot us all
who ever is there in the way!’

Those women and men
tied and gagged
Are their own kith & kin
Their stoney eyes
Bleak and void
Their silent screams
Deafening the sky.

And we all stand and watch
while they try to escape,
‘Can they, will they
make it out of this hell.’

Dust to dust

They have not found yet
Another planet like her
Still in a frantic search
They fight and loot each other.

This race to power
search of comfort
for Me and me only
because
Me and mine is the best.

An old frail mother
Shattered Earth,
Robbed and wounded
Stands in shock and wonders,
What will happen to them
Once they have drilled up
For the last drop of my resources.
How will thry survive
Not knowing in her deep pain
She may not be there
She is neglected to her ruin
by the greed
Of her own children!
