A CURSE UNTO A CHAPTER IN HISTORY
Such marks of insolence have stained History’s wrap
that a thousand chastening springs
will never cleanse them all.
Within the heart of this merciless
there are chapters:
Tales of acts of cruelty, cowardice that Man
has perpetrated upon Man;
Massacre of children it witnessed
yet, concealed in denial…….
the deceptive truth!
an eternal curse be cast upon you.
from cry of the limpid blood of my innocent people
– splashed across the earth in vain –
every line of your every disgraced page
be, for ever, scarred with the wounds of shame;
– this cradle of beasts –
be stigmatized with clots of blood.
Your visage be blotted, till the end of time,
of a thousand burning candles,
each depicting a thousand treacherous bereavement
inflicted shamelessly upon my blood line.
April 1991; from the book: “Testing the Chosen”.
