Email Poem | Today's Poetry
There are no winners in
The imperialistic wars of jahiliyah,
No living survivors,
Only the dead remain,
All combatants die,
Neither side has victory
It's just a political lie,
Every troop leaves a part
Of his soul on the battlefield ,
The winners never go do battle ,
Nor, leave their easy chair...
Or home,
They would rather die at home from cowardice
The abandon their comfort zone,
Making god synonymous with man,
Worshiping idols fashioned
By their own hands ,
Bowing before presidents ,
Petty potentates and kings,
Worshiping money,
Worshiping things,
Worshiping everything but God...
Many are dead before
They are placed beneath the sod,

By,
Abu Lateef
