Reprisal

 

 

Why does one learn to speak

when you’re not allowed

to say your own opinion

Why does one learn to write

when it’s forbidden to verse

your own thoughts

If you dare to use

the power of words,

trying to unchain

the crowd of puppets

by cutting loose

their strings

of the dictatorial regime,

the reprisal shall be

‘Execution’

 

 

 

 

Self-Destruction

 

 

The ruinous way

mankind

is systematically

polluting

the environment,

slowly annihilating

all living creatures

on this earth,

will at long last

be an act of

self-destruction.
