[Warning: The content of the clip is not for the light hearted]
Hounds that howl and devour the dead
Prowled around for flesh and blood
Hell broke loose –Oh! Wails of pain;
Bullets, bombs and chemical rain
Callous demons in cannibal fest,
Raped the doves and burnt their nest;
Stripped the feathers and slit their neck;
Buried in heaps, massacred wreck.
The proud nation fell to dust;
The world watched them moan and rust.
The demons danced in triumphant fest
And thanked Buddha for their conquest.
'And thanked Buddha for their conquest' - Shall we say for how long? But the people who are dead, will not come back. Their suffering cannot be forgotten.ReplyDelete
