The savagery man is capable of
When he believes his cause to be just.
There is no end to his barbarity
When devoured by this lust.
His arrogance breeds belligerence
That leads all the way to war.
His intolerance destroys empathy
To shake morality to the core.
All it takes is outrage,
Religious fanaticism or political zeal.
A charismatic leader’s inspiration
Sparking the reason to kill.
Placing nails inside a bomb.
Slicing off heads with a knife.
Massacring the innocent.
Rewarded with paradise or a child wife.
All in the name of someone’s god
Or a fanatical leader.
Become a torturer
Or propaganda breeder.
It does not take much
To release the savage hate.
A traumatic death
Or promise of a better fate.
Opher – 18.5.2021
I was watching the hatred being stirred up in the Middle East as the Israelis and Palestinians clash.
The rockets soar and the guns crash.
The martyred are used to enrage.
Years and years of humiliations, degradation and abuse.
The evil scum of Hamas harvest that hate and hone it into a weapon. The fanatical Jews treat the Palestinians as sub-humans and seek to kick them out.
Illegal settlements, rocks, knifings and bombs.
What a senseless world we create for ourselves. Rationality goes out the window.
