Assemblage of Voices
by Shernaz Wadia
Bookmark and Share
 
I join an assembly of voices…
the cooing of doves
their gentle pleas for peace
detonated by the tumult of wars
the supplications of the meek
shot down in the summits
of the mighty and powerful 

the voice of the exiled indigenous
their lands and cultures
usurped by thieving marauders
the anguished cries of those
in the imminent throes
of global warming 

petitions that give tongue
to the mute and hapless
the endangered and vanishing
I join them all…
small voices ostensibly lost
as they pitch against
the jangling ruckus
of murky assurances
and fraudulent promises
of corporate-driven greed
and grime-caked politics

Comment Indeed voice of the meek is silenced by the haughty corporate and political ones in nexus!
