By Rajani Kanth

 

Aria

Today:  

They bomb.

 

Iraq

Afghanistan

Yemen

Somalia

Mali

Niger

Sudan

Libya

Syria

Gaza.

 

Yesterday:

They murdered.

 

in Africa

in Asia

in the Americas

in Oceania

 

Twas

The Sixth Extinction:

a Seventh yet

to come:

here’s to

a  yo ho ho –

and a bottle

of rum:

 

Tomorrow?

They will kill, again.

 

So many Peoples,

Still remain.

Chorus

 

 

Riding high

In  Entropy:

Reeking of

Misanthropy:

Rolling in

Hypocrisy –

All too plain

To see

 

Shall be no more

Rise and Fall

For They Plan,

 To kill Us  All

Can you hear the

Angels call?

 

It’s Omnicide 

They swear

To  bring

when

they form

that  deadly

ring

 

around you,

me, and

everything:

As they drill,

march,

And lusty sing:

Of wanton

slaughter

On the wing

 

Unsmiling Ravagers

From Hell –

Plim with Pretexts

They know so well

Acting out some Orphic

Spell

Making Delphic

Passions swell

 

Ain’t time left

To  show and tell

O come Heed

the  Antic  Knell –

One Last Time,

 That blighted Bell

One Last Time!

Ding, Dong,  Bell
