A PERSONAL POEM

COWARDS

They did not fight him one on one
they with knives him with none
these ‘brave’ men used a car
knocked him down attacked him hard.
They shout their hate and fill our streets
with poison they have learned to speak
not somewhere else but in this land
these men have learned to hate ‘our’ man
But never will the country be
cowed and feared of men like these
We will stand and proudly say
this was OUR soldier you did slay
We will never let you win
we will never let you in
to the hearts of men so true
to any faith such as you
For faithful people do not hate
nor cowardly attack and bait
But live with friendship side by side
accept each other’s faith and try
to understand what going on
and live together all along
You spout your words commit your crimes
behind your ‘faith’ you try to hide
but all do know the thing that’s true
the name of coward belongs to you.

I wrote this poem yesterday in response to the terrible event that happened to the young soldier in Woolwich, at first I was not going to put it in here because this is about Sasha’s but as I do not have other blog,s to post it on I have decided that I will print it here.
