Hall of Shame

Hall Of Shame


Why would some Denizens 
annihilate their own citizens

And, build their dirty Name
with bones of Amputee lame;

Using Gas and using Gun
to wipe man under the Sun

Boots and chains of defences
grinding to pulp all senses,

By Force, Loyalty to extract
and the Dissenter to subtract 

So that fear of retribution
stops positive contribution,

This dastardly Hall of Shame
must not all revile the Name,

As Humanity needs protection
not this wanton subtraction?!
