A CALL TO WORLD CONSCIENCE

A CALL TO WORLD CONSCIENCE

You call stone palters terrorists and gun shooters innocent,
bravo world! For your duplicity and cunning cant.
Agonies of mourning mothers, sobbing sisters and wailing wives,
no pen can explain nor a painter can paint.
Pleaders for peace and fighters for justice and equality,
Alas! Proved otherwise in the guise of sympathizers and saint.
Killers were commended, usurpers eulogized and predators praised,
but victims remained desolate and to their sufferings no ear was lent.
O world conscience! Wake up to save humanity from humiliation and holocaust,
By pricking up perpetrators of persecution to cause in atrocities some dent.
