THE OPIUM OF VIOLENCE

written by: Arun Dash

 

The opium of violence
That your race
Has fallen for,
So horrendously,
May very soon lead you
To an impending doom.

Look, your skin has now become blue;
The saliva dripping from your parched lips
Has surplus ominous foams;
Your face, pale; your body, warm!
Seems the doom isn’t far away!

With a prayer on your lips
And hand over your heart,
If you kneel before Him,
With a pledge to espouse love
And love alone, now on,
He may forgive your sin,
Cure you of your fatal addiction,
And defer the doom awhile.
