THE BLOODY WATERS OF THE COVE

THE BLOODY WATERS OF THE COVE

How low can a man go
Just to make money
Some will sink so low
Even sell their family

We have seen how they destroy so ardent
The flora and fauna since birth
And how they’ve abused the environment
Thus destroying Mother Earth

They are killing one another
For the riches of the earth
They would invade and destroy
Just to get their own way

After so much tears have shed
Stifled by so much gross insensitivity
Have we really lost our Godhead
That we have eyes and yet can’t see

Of all the destructive catastrophes
The bloody waters of the Taiji Cove
Stands out above the rest like breeze
Sicker than any bad politics they wove

We have evolved as a being with no empathy
We are all omni-magni appetite consumers
A blood sucking normality conforming society.
Who can’t say no as a bunch of meat eaters

Man the killer of dreams
And everything it seems
But man can do better yes he can
He can choose his meat or go vegan

Man the killer
And destroyer
Of his very own kind
With a corrupted mind

Man the lover of wars
Leaving painful scars
Where-ever be goes
When-ever be scores

Man the killer of dreams
And hopes or so it seems
Whatever he finds
Like young minds

Man leaves trails
When-ever be fails
Of broken hearts
In flesh marts
Without meals
In paddy-fields

Man makes the poor, the poorest
Especially in the rain-forest
Displacing the poor aborigines
Depriving them of their means
To eke out a livelihood
As he preaches brotherhood

Man the abuser of wildlife
With his gun and knife
Using it with no care
To collect his souvenir
And when the animals fall
He hang them on his wall

But man is a sinner
A killer and a loser
Destroying our planet and all
Which would be his downfall

NORM’S POETRY CORNER

CAN’T KEEP ON HATING

The most powerful negative word is HATE
This one son-of-a-b**** word was with us
From the beginning when Cain slew Abel
When Moses came down from the mountain
And saw his people whom he just freed
From the jaws of the Roman Pharaoh
Partaking in idolatry and debauchery
He threw the Ten Commandments
On the sinners and many went to hell
But mankind was always evil and hateful
And we can’t have love if there’s no hate
But then you can’t keep on hating
Unless some are profiteering from hatred
In modern times we have witnessed
How some divide and rule
Or spread hatred to cause division
Then the Saints came marching in
As peace makers with sly grins
We had our fill of the Cold War
But the foundation was built on hatred
The two big superpowers parry and thrust
As injustice lasted for over 5 decades
Each aiding and abetting by proxy wars
Creating havoc leaving millions homeless
From the Suez, Berlin to the Cuban Missile crises
Erupting with Korea, Vietnam, and the Yom Kippur wars
Spreading from Ethiopia, Angola to Mozambique
To the Middle East in Iraq and in Afghanistan1
Many stood their ground and never succumbed
And eventually love reaped its rewards
The crumbling of the Berlin Wall
Was showered with uncontrollable love
On both sides of that vicious wall
Unity of the two Vietnams and one Germany
As we wait for Korea to become humane again
The war mongers are always waiting
In the wings for the next warring nation
Hatred needs ammunition like guns
Tanks, planes, bullets, rockets, mines and bombs
Folks are getting richer as the refugees pile up
As the UN fights a hopeless case again and again
And we we create more strife and wars
We get more temples, mosques and churches
And we end up with nations of pure hatred
But we can’t keep on hating
Surely we have seen its not working2
We ask why they hate us?
They answer, Why you hate us?
Why not try loving one another?
