The Triumphing of Democracy

(Published in Countercurrent.org)

 

 

 

We see

And yet we will see —

 

The war clouds turn the sky aflame

The razing ground do much the same

 

Neanderthals died of unknown cause

Homosapiens crossed a borderless world.

 

Civilisation spread

Nuclear Armament

 

Bloodied wars

 

Unhouse the ones who read

Shroud them

Beat them till they bleed

 

Only one can lead

The rest must cede

 

Intolerance breed

 

Breed bleed

 

Bleed

Bleed

Bleed

 

And yet, Faiz will sing,

Rise up and ring…

We will see,

Hum Dekhenge…

 

Is it the trump-petting of Armageddon?

 

What clouds fill the sky with red smokes of hell?

Kangaroos die before the parting knell.

 

Is it in our hands to live and die?

The moving finger writes across the sky.
