Boeing

 

 

More Planes grounded as technical problems emerge

 

 

How many lives will be consumed

Before developed nations start realizing

That the whole world is agonized

With defective aircraft ‘Boeing’?

 

How many more people

Would the airlines keep tantalizing

And risky with its cripple

Plane taking off and flying?

 

This is an illustration of capitalism

Thriving in an inhuman surrounding

While the rich care for their conservatism,

The travellers face risk of dying

 

Keep the airlines out

Before more disasters happening

Passengers’ safety is paramount

Save their lives – not Boeing

 

 

 

 

 

Uncompromising Manning

 

 

“I Know no one More Patriotic:” Daniel Ellsberg Praises Chelsea Manning After She Is Jailed Again

 

 

Even after years of torture

Staring at a bleak future

Refusing to bow before pressuring

Rulers, stands tall Chelsea Manning

 

Their attempts to bully her fail

And may have been sent back to jail

But the credibility of the jury is waning

Before the greatness of Chelsea Manning

 

Surely! No one is more patriotic

And more sincerely authentic

In protecting Truth in circumstances trying

Than stubborn uncompromising Manning
