Remarkable in its sense of human sensibilities and awareness. This poem reaches beyond the understanding of most westerners, who have been fed on the poison of the White Man’s burden, but it will, someday, when it is all over, be treasured as an everlasting gem of light, a spark in the period of the darkest darkness.

William Blake, another poet of Universal humanitarian dimensions was once imprisoned for his poetry in the narrow cell of his own culture.

    Well said, Richard Falk.

    The addition of your own voice to your offerings adds realness, truthfulness and authenticity, improving the overall result substantially.

    A worthy effort.

    Wonderful. Brave. A fine poem. The weapons of mass destruction did not exist. (did they?) The ‘witnesses’ brought before Congress by Chalabi were proven to be liars. (Weren’t they?) But somehow the LIES stand. They still ring out to salve the conscience after the long bloodbath is done. The carefully constructed CIA myth of the evil Sadaam, and the ‘rightious reckoning’.

    A heart of gold is required to feel and understand the rhythm and rhyme in the words of Mr. Richard Falk, a person with an innate passion can deliver such words for a person whom majority considered evil. We salute you Mr. Falk Sir. Our heads will always bow in respect for you.
