No Fire Zones

‘In response to the attempt to massacre the Tamil national community in Sri Lanka, one activist wrote the following poem’

No Fire Zones

“No” said the world

While thousands cried,

Begging for Mercy.

“No” said the world

While infants blown

And into pieces torn.

“No” said the world

While the injured

Died for lack of medical aid

“No” said the world

While women got raped

And thrown into fire.

“No” said the world

While a river of blood

Took stream on the sand

“No” said the world

When thousands begged

For intervention from the world

Of shallow morals and hollow justice.
