A Slaughter House

A Slaughter House short poem

Photo by gaelx

This poem is dedicated to the twenty one Egyptian martyrs who were kidnapped by the (ISIS) in Libya and slaughtered in cold blood.

Their mothers were waiting ,
their families were crying
their souls were sighing

they were worried about cruelty ,
they were worried about humanity,
they were worried about the future world ,

they died being helpless ,
they died a fearing death ,
they died leaving a challenge ,

was it not a mass sacrifice,
was it not butcher’s play ,
was it not a coward’s game ,
was it not a death of humanity ,
was it not a death of morality ,
was it not a death of fear,

now we have to fight back ,
now we have to mow it down
now we have to meet the challenge

all together we should handle the situation,
all together we should destroy this slaughter house
all together we should protect humanity ,

for that we have to be united
for that we have be brave
for that we have be universally one .

There was a man whose name was Jake Who had a house upon the lake Every morning he would wake And for breakfast have a piece of cake He had a private fishing hole; He always used a long cane

The Glass House

The Glass House short poem

Not yet, the courage will wait for the curtain to fall, will then disappear in awakening; the crucial thing was the love of absence the scythe of eclipsed moon. Suspense hangs from the tall image in slow turn of thighs

Why dont you refuse to be selfish and cruel, Over meat you drool Why have you become animals’ graveyard, These mute creatures are worthy to be safeguard Why are you keen on feeding your tyrannical appetite, Are you blind to
