Hacked to pieces, limb by limb
Ravaged bodies, shattered souls.
Mindless mayhem, odium galore
To what purpose and to what goals?
Families destroyed in a blink of eye
Extinguishing lives to light a fire.
In the name of religion, savagery
A sick joke or a sadist’s satire?
A whiff of love, a kiss to follow
A bit of loaf on your plate.
Isn’t this all that we need in life?
Sans misplaced fervour, angst and hate.
