Blood For Economy

Life has been made cheap
Only to keep
Self or national interest
Above all to serve best

Big national play power game
Small countries feel no shame
They involved in power play to claim
And keep areas under flame

Oil is main factor for economy
Many countries wanted aid as steady flow
This invited power race
It became bloody powerful chase

Sea pirates have turned powerful
They are now proving harmful
Big ships are hijacked and asked for ransom
The sea route has turned dangerous zone

Other areas are burning
For land sharing
And establishing hegemony
This has added new danger for so many countries
