Human Animals

When a war breaks out
And bombs and toxic weapons rain down,
And millions are imprisoned,
Women are abducted and raped,
Children are slaughtered,
The classy liberals toast and drink
And side with the warriors
And argue for and against
The warring lands

Our life-long lesson goes astray,
Our sense of sanity derails,
We degenerate into human animals

Dance of death around,
Acres of burial mounds,
Severed limbs, floods of blood,
Crumpled buildings,
Piles of debris —enjoyable
To the twittering masses

Shame on the colonizers!
Shame on the occupiers!
Shame on the white supremacists!
Shame on their supporters!

I write because there is some lie that I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, said George Orwell. As a writer, I never kowtow to the whims and dictates of the sacred godmen or godwomen, the political bigots and hypocrites, dealers of laymen, the dishonest and self-serving intellectuals, traders of religions, the betrayers of ‘other’ Indians who eke out a living by their sweat, who are living in fear for being lynched for this and that.
