Belonging to the Cause

Belonging to the Cause

A Poem by A Jackson

Orphans fill our blood-spilled streets

As roads turn to graves

More women and children were slaughtered today

Now streams of anguish flow.

 

Bodies are bodies, the people are gone

A ‘gang’ of opinion wiped out

The lives of the innocent are pained, too many

Taken by the lost.

 

Men hold guns and preach of God

A murderous plea to all 

Contradiction in every word they cry

“Death to save their sins”.

 

Forgotten are the teachings, old

Believing what suits the cause

They’ve forgotten the word of the Lord; 

In death and life we belong.
