Cry Burma

Cry Burma


Freedom went
So long ago
Democracy died
Along with state
Their leader and mentor
Aung San Suu Kyi
Tried to create.

Evil tyrants
In khaki dress
Fire the bullets
Into human flesh
Ripping out freedom
With chunks of lead
As Monks and Nuns
Lay dying and dead.

A puppet state
Of China
Next door
The Generals
With soldiers
They employ
But forty years
Is far to long
Military rule
They can’t defend.

China must make
This nightmare end.

This poem has been posted many times over the years in the vain hope that this brave and courageous woman would gain her freedom to bring democracy to Burma,over recent days this might become a reality....
