Theme: Terrorism

Killing the Kins

Killing the kith and kin
For their money
Or to usurp their property
When they return home
Needs a serious view.

They left homes and hearths
To struggle
In lands new and strange
Among aliens
And endure pangs of separation
And curses of racism
For years
And return among their OWN
To share
Their joy and success.

But their own
Are no longer their OWN.
The same, callous now, conspire
A cold war to wipe them off.
Law, politics or society
Also play mute mischief
To twist their calculations
Or hush up the deed!
Against the prey!

We tackle terrorism,
Day and night,
Declare a World War on it '
Worse than 1914and 1939
Amidst din and pandemonium
Of loud warnings
Singing of proud and brave action '
Falling flat apart!

Who will fight
These terrorist kin
At home?
