In The Land of Darkness
In the land of new darkness
You cannot see a friend.
In the gloom of fear
Terror looms around the bend.
Armed and wary,
Shoot first ask later,
Drown and cage,
Through the eyes of a serial hater.
I feel that the fear of immigration and terrorism has created a tragedy. It has landed us with both Brexit and Trump.
The terrorists have won. They split us. They are gleefully watching us destroy ourselves.
Who would have believed that?
We trust nobody. Friend falls out with friend. Strangers are all potential terrorists. We have created fear and hatred that is cyclic. It regenerates itself.
Fascism is on the rise. It’s the thirties all over again. Just substitute Jew for Muslim. The wave of hate is heading towards war.
We live in a land of callousness and darkness.
Time for a bit of love!!!
