VETO

Vote and Veto,
In confusion,
Like setup and upset,

I know my voting right,
But don't know who is right?

Accused

Abomination 
Eyes penetrating the depths 
Clinical visit

Natural-illegal waves

old pond calm waters
Wind creates natural waves
stones cause illegal

To Be Muslim

I cover myself.
They ask, "Why, are you ashamed?"
I say, "No. I'm proud."

Short Rights poem by Abdulhafeez Oyewole| Details | |

Sans Servile

In sang-froid, sass cords:
Sangoma dashes siren,
Thunder crashes trunk;
Sarky banters with lippy.
Spim for Santa maidenhead.

What Giveth My Soul Joy

oh the 
hand of God
beat her
cosmic tamborine-drum
ripples through
space and time
thus all remains
a constant
what giveth 
thy soul joy

WRONG IS RIGHT

Right and wrong are different,
All the rights are not rights,
All the wrongs are not wrongs,
Doing a wrong right,
Not wrong,
Lord Buddha and Gandhi,
Came right doing wrong!

Short Rights poem by Tobi Osunkoya| Details | |

Fame

She dreams of a throne
where she is not alone 

Dreams of stars 
That aren't to far 

Wishes for peace 
where pain is least 

Hopes for grace 
where she can see his face 

And still know her fame 
hasn't changed 
her name

Short Rights poem by Tobi Osunkoya| Details | |

Wasted Thoughts

I spend mindless weekends 
Trying to make mends 
To a future thats already gone 
Tell me, where did it all go wrong 

I spend weekdays 
on pretence 
leave my soul to defend 
cause the mind will never mend 
This will never end

Hymn to the morning star

Hymn to the morning star With these scars that remain, and the fear in the streets. The devil's breathing embers, his flesh you'll eat. When it's nail upon bone, and thorn upon brow,...to be enlightened is to be a sinner and against the herd I've found.

Rondelet: De-Human-ised Rights

Rondelet : De-Human(-ised) Rights

De-human rights
Most rights rest with superior-born humans
De-human rights
Some with their favourites in tights
Most to Muscle-men and Masons
Least to God-less men sans under-pants
De-human(-ised) rights.

Short Rights poem by Abdullah Alhemaidy| Details | |

Who

You want the truth! May be you disagree 
However, that what I feel and what I see
No person could feel your pain and sorrow, 
Indeed one person knew! That's you who
Knew what you have done and gone through.
It is not totally your  problem
Partially it is because of them.

Short Rights poem by J. W. M. Earnings| Details | |

Bladder Problems in Class

Numbers on 
White board…names written hori-
zontally

Students ask
To go pee…right when class starts – 
THAT’S just wrong…

Bathroom line
Of students who have bladder
Problems – WOW!

People are
Not using lunchtime to do 
Their business 

No one knows
When to do their duties – SER-
IOUSLY?

Short Rights poem by Meg Anderson| Details | |

My plea

With every twist and turn I go so far...
I am tangled in this web of fright...
Is this for my might?

My one and only plea...
Can't you see is to fight...

Not with fists raised high or slander...but with words and candor...

My one and only plea...can't you see is to fight...


Short Rights poem by AJAYI RASHEED| Details | |

INTRANSIGENCY

WHY ARE YOU POPULAR?
IN PARTICULAR
WHY ARE YOU AN EMPLOYEE?
IN OUR MODUS OPERANDI

AND THEY ARE NOT ASHAMED
FOR YOU TO BE BLAMED
AND THEIR GENERATION
SAME CHILD OF ADOPTION

INTRANSIGENCY, LEAVE MY ELDORADO
AGED, LEAVE THE NATALITY INTO TO
WITH THE CHILD INTRANSIGENCY
IN OUR BELOVED ELDORADO
 

Short Rights poem by Zulfiqar Ali Bhatti| Details | |

Chivalry

Chivalry is not to fight in the field, 
To kill the crowd and not take shield.

Nor it is to defy the death, 
And try to fight till the last breadth.

Fray the foe and stay with strength, 
Keeping in the chaos line and length.

It is to subdue, the soul in the plight, 
And always be by the side of the right.

Short Rights poem by Christopher Thor Britt| Details | |

Injustice

The sharpest sight may blind become
All prejudice left behind
When wisdom's tongue becomes dumb
No mercy shall we find

Justice too does sometimes peak from
'round her tattered blinders
When scales are tipped, she then cries out
As freedom slowly binds her

                              ~Christopher Thor Britt

Short Rights poem by Donald Reith| Details | |

ORGANIZE

Things that matter. 

Not useless data. 

Unlest without your behest. 

Cooked up by the NSA. 

And the Mad Hatter. 

In the end all is just chatter. 

Trying not to shatter.

 Either by pity patter or splatter. 

If I had my druthers bruthas (and sistas). 

I'll take the latter. 

Organize or scatter.

Why tread on me

We hold these truths people secure above all                                                                We the people evidence mounts around us                                                                    To contrary for some in order are rights                                                                    Altered by greed

Short Rights poem by Douglas Dicketts| Details | |

Can't Happen Here

Some Storks and Froggies
Decided to play
One night by the light of the moon

But the tail of their game
Was much too profane
And besides 
It ended too soon

It’s for your best
Storks would say
Please see things our way
Just trust us
And you will do well

But the rules they rewrote
And the frogs lost the vote
And with frog
Stork bellies did swell

Short Rights poem by Robert L. Hinshaw| Details | |

'Free Speech'

'Occupiers' closed Oakland port last night

   Don't they realize that ain't very bright

      Nuts and fruits are shipped from there

         So a caution should they care

            They could be shipped to get them outta sight

(Just exercising my 'free speech' rights as well!)

BOTHERING QUERIES

Religion, faith expression
Who says they're the truth?
Are they saved?

Priests, nuns lives in chastity
Drafted from teachings?
Are they holy?

Money collections on church
Upright or unfair?
Can you tell?

Kneeling praying fervently
Heart's honest and pure?
Try to gauge?
