UNITED NATIONS @ SEVENTY-ONE
America, Britain, China, France & Russia
The five veto-power nations of confusion
Inventors of weapons of mass destruction
Is war your cup of tea?
Do you swab your hands with human blood?
Can’t you hear the cries of innocent souls
Of Palestinian offspring, Syrian kids of oceans,
Progenies of Libya, Somalia, Yemen, etc., etc.?
UN @ Seventy-one years of male chauvinism
Ten UN Secretary-Generals without a woman
Where there is no woman, no humanism
Little wonder the world is in turmoil
You’ve done well; yet too gory soil
What a civilised world of “paradoxity”
A world full of worms of hypocrisy
Where wars become the rock of Peace
Yet Peace is not the dearth of wars
Where anarchy becomes the womb
That gives birth to harmony
Yet harmony wedges not the tomb
That consumes babies of wars
UN @71, do something before you die!
A POEM DEDICATED TO UNITED NATIONS @ 71 (1945-2016)
