The brigands charged down the hill,
With chilling battle cries,
Callously and gleefully they butchered men, women and children,
Set fire to huts,
Raped, tortured and looted.
But those were the days of long ago.
Except, now they use drones
And ‘peace keepers’.
Opher – 12.7.2020
Once upon a time we built walls around our cities and had fortified castles; we raised armies and kept constant watch.
What a way to spend your life – in fear of brigands.
They’d sweep down with their armies, killing, torturing, looting and raping.
Nowadays we’re much more sophisticated. We do it from afar.
