The Weeping Moon


Witnessing the blood baths, the massacre
Of God’s people, children’s bodies everywhere,
And octogenarians expire slowly and quietly in horror.

    Not even the poet's lament and descriptive words and accusations can tame the savage beast that lives hidden in man's inhuman breast.Man's inhumanity to Man, Robert Burns However, as poets, we must try, and for every human injustice put out a cry. Thank you, Hebert Logerie. (Report) Reply

    sad situation! but what right do these peace keeping countries have to go to the foreign lands with their big machines and technology to destroy their homes, men, women and children. Our men, from both sides, don't have to sacrifice their life, we want them to be safe. Individualistic act of hurting is called as terrorism, what shall we call this atrocity of mass killing in the name of war? Yes, their crescent moon weeps, our full moon weeps, someone's new moon weeps too.10+++ (Report) Reply

    I wanna thank you for the obvious picture u presented inhere that described how cruel is the world we live in
    from past time till now more beasts are created to humiliate people with no mercy at all, with no discrimination between children, women or man... I am as Iraqi suffered this unhuman war and compassioned with all the people who suffered the same war of Big Guns like u described
    War can never bring PEACE to human kind
    War is death, horror, blood, aglines, evil..............

    my tongue is stuck

    thanks to you

    The reality expressed here should be placed before the leaders of nations everyday - too often disengaged from the horrors of war! A forceful journey of truth without the spin and glory attached. Excellent write. Thank You. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
