Antipathy Of Ignorance

The dead arise
as the bird sings in antipathy
of the fallen
that were once great
in this undivided land
that once held
a full nation
of many a children
of many a colour
and many a religion

that once
had its origin
on a garden far above

now the trees
are barren
and the dead litters
upon this segregated earth.

of divided
colors and religions.

They give
big names
and words like:
terrorism and pre-emtive wars.

In big buildings
they bill out laws
to rule mankind
that once were the domain of gods

But what now?
what more to suffer
what more to indulge
in antipathy of ignorance.
