They answered the call to prayer

 

 

On their knees

For the unholy one…

For the veil to fall on every woman’s face

Every beer to be swiped from every hand

 

They answered the call

Of the devil, dry and poisonous to touch

to…

Slash

Ataturk’s throat

Snap

Freedom of speech

Gas

Protesters and leave their bodies hanging in the streets

Turn Kurds

Into dead meat

 

They answered the drum beat

Pounding through street

Let’s become greater Saudi Arabia

With me the sultan on the seat

David R Mellor

Born 1964, (Liverpool, England) difficult birth, didn’t find my voice until my youth. Years of thinking I was nobody and treated as such. However, hit the paper papering over the scars. Found understanding and belief through words. I have been published and performed widely from the BBC, The Tate, galleries and pubs and everything in between.

My poems are autobiographical, others topical and several my take on life. Hope you enjoy reading as much as I have enjoyed writing. Please feel free to share your thoughts on links below.
