War


Detonators blowing
Every now and then
Causing tender ears of kids to bleed
Mines are placed,
Roads blocked
People being checked.
Harassed and stripped.

Feeble cries
Lost in the roar of the deafening blasts.
Roads soaked in blood.
But you’re busy greasing your muscles.
Celebrating your “victory”
Naming your massacre a defeat of the enemy.

Killing thousands in the name of nation or religion.
To claim it is more peaceful!?
Both mere concepts.
manmade.
Now killing men.

The human race has gone mad.
Earth becoming a living hell.
In name of peace, people are being chopped into pieces.
For the love of religion, hatred is being perpetuated
In name of the nation, innocent soldiers are being killed.

When the real troublemakers stay away from the war zone.
Living a life of luxury.
Poors pay for their deeds,

Die fighting their war.
