hy have you chosen to ride
the waves of misty orb,
causing quakes and cracks
as if the two tectonic plates have collided?
We stare as science runs a race against time.
We observe with frightened countenance,
as bullets whistle,
and mortar bombs with their ear splitting sounds
rain over the blue sky.
What a harbinger for intercontinental missiles to come!
A literary genius upheld that “there was a country,”
The ember month is poised to tell us
that there was a continent.
Political leaders shelve their responsibilities,
in selfish pursuit and arrogant bossiness.
Many of them find comfort
in the sound of their voices.
But often their hearts are not in their words,
and they mean not what they say.
Where the sun rises and sets
and sovereignty still prevails,
those in the corridors of power,
must assume the attitude of a shepherd.
Every good shepherd has the care of his flock,
uppermost in his mind.
They have failed us, they have failed the world
