Drastic action may be needed

The drastic measures of  our governments

They say will bring more safety to the world.

But  one wonders what is their desired intent?

As we watch the roll of images uncurl.


As Paris  is much closer than the Middle East

We fear that we too  might be soon attacked.

This shows  us humans are  yet narcissistic  beasts.

We  narrow gaze to Europeans’ lacks.


Ironic thoughts of Armistice appear.

How France and Britain  punished Ottoman.

No vision of a  future hell was feared.

An Empire to be looted;oil rich lands.


Now our world has shrunk and  history repeats:

It’s folly to  ignore our real defeat.
