Bloodshed in Myanmar

The sky is red by the blood being shed
The conscience of civilized world asleep
Where in the world is humanity being lead
Here is a corpse there is a throat cut deep

Vultures are feasting, dogs devouring
Devils dancing, angels clamoring
Monsters feasting, demons dancing
Guns tottering, weapons wielding

Is Muslim blood thinner?
Easy to be shed without remorse
Palestine, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kashmir and now Myanmar
And existing Al-Qaida, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and Taliban’s curse 

Tortuous perils and vulnerability,
Fanatical sectarianism’s brutality
The two-edged sword of bigotry
Parochial savagery and barbarity  

Religious teachings innocuous
Be them of Buddha, Muhammad or Jesus
Where are your wits, where is the focus?
Insensitive, vicious and callous
Await the leaping Hell-fire’s tentacles

    Thanks for visiting my poem and for your kind words. I wrote this when tyranny was unleashed in Myanmar in the name of religion. From the time immemorial pen has been fighting the sword. To my mind there can't be better use of pen than to fight for the world peace.

    Man's inhumanity to man is always with us. Yet there are good people on all sides and in every walk of life . For them and you and I pray for. And I do it often.We must try to be happy.

    Such a sad and horrible thing to take a life. I pray for peace for all the world and keep faith that all will love one another one day. God Bless.. Your Friend Debbie

    Thanks Anne for your touching comments. Bloodshed in the name of religion or in whatever name is heinous. Religion stands for love. The pity is that it is being used for hatred. Lots of love.

    I feel your angst,'s cruelty and savagery never ends...still, we've got to believe that one day..perhaps not in our time, but peace will come..history has shown that Mother Earth cleanses herself when her cup is filled.. Take heart my friend! Love, Annalise

    Thanks for your kind words Anne. Your positive and encouraging thoughts are a solace. From time immemorial mankind is witnessing huge and monsterous shadows of the first bloodshed. May be this is the nature's idea of keeping the exploding human population under control. The mystry is known to God alone. Love. -Mohammad
