Inhumanity Profound

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


Itinerants roam the streets in mobs,

while authority lurks in shadows cold,

watching bleakly unrest evolve,

in change the folly of power, dissolved.


The cries of suffering, death and tragedy,

descend on life and innocence badly,

decisions to quash unwanted ends,

creating far worse pain, amends.


Too far the force of political will,

when children pay from cruelty still,

where death is just a cleaning measure,

to rid the streets of opposition displeasure.


Not force or might to quell the crowds,

but noxious gases amid screams abound,

with families torn, many lives are lost,

from heartless men without qualm or cost.


What have we come to, as human beings,

with such reckless spite and savage dreams,

to cut down weak and defenceless souls,

who did nothing but live with peace as a goal.

Thank you FR, and I'll read some of James Wolve's work. Take care.

I saw that first image and it sickens me. I cry for this world of such horrors and especially for all of the little children. One would think that society (the world), as a whole, by now, would be so far from such evil, but we know it is just on the increase with much intensity. Your poetry is so very profound. If you do not follow another great poet here on HP, who publishes on such, James Wolve, I know he would love your poetry and you, his powerful writes too. I tend to not comment on extremely political writes, and I do not consider this political but such "Inhumanity Profound" ...

God bless, Faith Reaper
