A Poem Titled 'how Long'. Pls. Make Your Comments. by Yujin(m): 1:15am On May 26, 2012
HOW LONG
How long shall we bear this?
The strike after the serpent's hiss
Which makes us live in fear
When mourning in the mornings we hear

How long, how long
Shall the rooster stand on a foot?
As we starve of a bad tooth
When all is left to rotten
Whose effect shall not be forgetten

How long, how long
Since we dreamt in peace
Like the sheep, we've lost our fleece
But of mother seems indifferent
To the apathy of these belligerents

How long, how long
Shall these vampires suck?
See, see the flying hawk
While we act the mother hen
Or are we of an empty den?

How long, how long
Shall the spider knit its web?
With our watchdogs are at their lowest ebb
Emiratans, tell the daddy long-legs
To cut the flow from their murderous kegs

How long, how long
Shall they dwell in deceit
Living a life of vain conceit
Go learn how to serve
For we now have the nerve

From my collection 'Arcanious Poems'.
