Beyond Darkness - Poem by Rafique Farooqi

Facing the rage of fundamentalists
Borne with generation of lies
Might of lies stands fearless
Devouring the victories
With bloodsheds brought by conspiracy theory
Hippocrates advancing towards all natural resources
Hanging  corpses of rebels  on poles
Why to deter their last wings
Democracy a weapon of mass destruction  
Bangs with hunger and famines
Labyrinthine beliefs of global warming 
Raising their funds to grab the races.
It was fine to lie, to steal and to cheat,
To accomplish the bitterness  of their own kind
To make you a more better person
Or you are to be killed like pests
War field overrun by Trojan Horses
Darkness lurking on new websites.
Pushing you better to stone ages
You run and hunt your own desires again
Again Your watch the rage of barbarians 
Slaughtering mankind with steel and fire
Again you find drifting to bottom
Of ample arable farms and a irrigable lands you lost.
Before the short lived victories of terror.
Due to structural inequality 
Lose all your sieges to survive
A life fatal to pretenders
