Poem: The justified genocide

No ratings yet.

[responsivevoice_button voice=”US English Male” buttontext=”Read out this Theel for me”]


Mighty armies rallied, flexing their flexed muscles, ready for their
Justified genocide, waiting
For that red rose, the dawn, to execute their task
Smiling and unfettered rises the red rose
High in the sky, heralding a new day
Laughing maniacally at those men who justify their
Genocide in the name of aspirations
For it has seen hopeless aspirations crumble
To dust, forever forgotten
For it has seen the losers taste dust at victor’s and
Victor’s taste dust at nature’s hands
Fighting raged on and on
Still the red rose rose high above into the skies, laughing
At the stupidity of these humans
Who refuse to be enlightened
Who drew themselves into a much darker cloak
Than that resplendent red rose can ever
Hope to penetrate, much less annihilate
After the guns lost their voice,
In the eerie silence that followed
The loser’s fall in the victor’s war with no survivors
The red rose rose again, smiling and unperturbed
At the sight of those vultures, gathering
For their sumptuous feast in merriment
It has always been the same for the red rose
Genocide favoured only those vultures
And none else ever…..None else ever

A genocide which can be explained away as righteous…
