Sudan Poetry: Moment of Truth Sums

Moment of truth sums

The people want freedom:
Aye, bellows the liberator;
The people want peace:
Aye, bellows the peacemaker;
The people want reconciliation:
Aye, bellows the mediator;
The people want love:
Aye, bellows the lover;

The people want food:
Nope, bellows silence;
The people want education:
Nope, bellows silence;
The people want houses:
Nope, bellows silence;
The people want hospitals:
Nope, bellows silence

Ayes + Nopes = WAR

THE PEOPLE WANT WAR:
AYE, BELLOWS THE WAR MONGER.

This is a poem from TORE magazine.  I was browsing through it today and this one jumped out at me. Struck me as rather fitting given current events and the state of so many at this junction in time.
