The relentless warrior

 

 

(Julian Assange, Wikileaks founder charged in US, prosecutors accidently reveal)

 

 

Despite threats and intimidation

With stoic determination

Voices of Julian Assange roar

From the sheltered embassy of Ecuador

 

Despite deteriorating health,

And ever shrinking wealth

Exposing the US imperialist designs of war

Lives Assange precariously in embassy of Ecuador

 

Despite the appeals of his mother

And world’s activists together

Western powers pounce with rigour

To ‘evacuate’ him from embassy of Ecuador

 

Like a latent volcano lava waiting to erupt

Against injustice, tyranny and system corrupt

He is determined. Kudos to his valor –

The indomitable prisoner in embassy of Ecuador

 

 

 

 

 

No sympathy

 

 

(Palestinian Ambulance attacked in Hebron, November 18, 2018)

 

 

They have become an epitome of barbarity

Losing every tenet of humanity

 

Killing Palestinians is routine news

With impunity they continue rights abuse

 

Now a shameless attack on an ambulance

Reflects their innate intolerance

 

Zionists are not content in brutal murders

They do not want to spare poor patients

 

What more can describe their atrocities,

Their callous manners and stark cruelties?
