Man(iac) Kind

On fellow man
Had we trust
That too has gone
Up in dust

Look around you,
Lives are being taken
Time has come
For us to reawaken

Spared has violence
Not one!
People, oh People!
What have we done!

A father kills
His own daughter
Reduced has the world
To a house of slaughter

What can I do
I ask
Changing the world
Has become a Herculean task

I cannot help
But weep
I want to go into
Eternal sleep

I am not ashamed
To say
In this world,
I am afraid to stay
