Poetry – John Phillips – Syrian Rondeau

John Philips the poet!!

Opher's World

Syrian Rondeau

With veiled hypocrisy, our cries

For Syria’s agony disguise

A national interest, which demands

Licence to plunder and to stand

In judgement, as we seek the prize.

Our history falsely justifies

Superior worth, which testifies

That all should bow, as we command

With veiled hypocrisy.

By politics we legalise

Our case to feed the screaming skies,

The killing-fields and smoking sands.

Whilst tearfully wringing bloodstained hands

We pontify and moralize

With veiled hypocrisy

Check out his poetry book – Shorts and Shots
