If I Ruled The Red Cross

IF I RULED THE RED CROSS If I Ruled the Red Cross,  many changes I would make It would be required  that our Movement is understood By everyone without excuses. If I Ruled the Red Cross, Every activity is scrutinised Before they'll be organised By the principles that are recognised Be indictable not to be prized To preserve my Independence from being Paralysed. If I Ruled the Red Cross, Nobody will misuse the emblems No one will violate the principles Everyone will follow the due protocols Anything that's wrong Shall always be wrong No matter who does it. If I Ruled the Red Cross, The emblem shall be Red Cross Never would our documents Be printed in Black Cross Anybody found wanting Will have their faces crushing In the ocean of red crossing. If I Ruled the Red Cross,  I would require  every volunteer to love each other  as a sister or a brother  and care for those suffering  from the pains of illness By giving my Voluntary Service Without expecting kind gesture in reverse. If I Ruled the Red Cross,  I would want it to be  a happier and more loving place  of lasting peace There would be no wars,  no hurt in anyone’s life Life would be long  and held with respect.  If I Ruled the Red Cross, The rules of war Shall always be a law The Geneva Conventions Would be respected By every soldier as expected. If I Ruled the Red Cross, I would be open to criticism Refrain from nepotism Desist from individualism Discourage sectionalism And embrace unionism. If I Ruled the Red Cross, this is what I would require,  but sadly I do not  and my dreams are just dreams  of a place we call tranquillity Where we preach Impartiality Sing the song of Neutrality. However, If I Ruled the Red Cross, I would try to make tranquillity  To spread the power of Humanity To cherish the strength of Unity Everywhere for everyone is Universality Into our own reality.  ©Marabi Amfaal Hydara The Humanitarian Poet

Marabi, this is an interesting poem. it has opened my eyes to issues I was unaware of. I realise I was naïve to think organisations like the Red Cross were all positive all the time. I think we will ask our students to read your poem, ask questions and find out more about what really happens
