Red Death and Crimes
Red death - hands bloodstained
by countless lives lost
and only power gained.
Red "Party" - poisoned hearts
of a tempest unbridled
from its tainted past.
Red flags - an allegiance blind
to terror unfurled
from darkest designs.
Red tears - China's despair
of tides now turning
free from the dragon and its evil lair.
How Many Crimes?
How many lives must be lost
how many children must continue to suffer?
How many hearts must be torn apart
how much hatred forged against another?
How many voices must be silenced
how many crimes must be disguised?
How much slander and widespread propaganda
how many tears remain uncried?
