Warm is the war
Reporting the list, sir!
Ravi Shankar is a poet from Palakkad, India. It
seems that he wrote this poem after seeing photos or televised images documenting
the war in Gaza in July 2014. Every war is like that - cruel. Murdering
children, adolescents in the bloom of life, pregnant women, grandmothers,
calm gray-haired men. Yes, there are also those sent into battle. Some
unwilling, some forced by monetary circumstances to join an army, some
foolish and eager to kill and to die. Who are those directors of the cruel
play who write the scenarios and who send them into a "theater of war"?
And which public applauds them? (~aw~)
