Aung San Suu Kyi – A poem about Myanmar

Aung San Suu Kyi

 

 

Aung San Suu Kyi

What is wrong with thee?

Don’t you care about the Rohingya?

Are you now a prisoner?

Why did you change?

I find it really strange.

Once you were so fair

And now you simply do not care.

Do the Generals pull your strings?

Have they clipped off your wings?

Or has power eaten up your mind?

Leaving no hint of compassion behind?

Once you were showered with acclaim

Now you should hang your head in shame.

Oxford have rejected you

Because your behaviour will not do.

Once you stood for justice in the future

Now you condone rape and torture.

Did power go straight to your head?

Or do Generals control every word that’s said?

Aung San Suu Kyi

What is wrong with thee?

It is quite evident that the military are running the show in Myanmar. They have harnessed the racism of the Buddhist majority to wage war on minorities.

Aung San Suu Kyi seems powerless, her wings clipped.

I'd like to hear from you...
