A Bloody Feast (Poem by Vinh Nguyen)

Just another poem I had written thus far.  Enjoy!!!

  • With the eyes of a beast,
  • eyeing a prey,
  • creeping toward a feast,
  • final moment fell upon a prey.
  • Bloody feast it was,
  • but it was just another hunt.
  • Bloody feast it was,
  • reinvigorating for another fun.
  • The hunter must hunt,
  • so there will be another feast.
  • The prey must run,
  • to escape from the belly of the beast.
  • Came a day the beast got too old,
  • could not run to make hunts meet.
  • Weakened old beast had gone cold,
  • became another corpse for prey’s ends meet.
  • A cycle of predator and prey,
  • would last until the end of time.
  • Animalistic they,
  • found their way from the inception of time.
  • Thus it would be hard to see,
  • the end of such a vicious cycle.
  • Should I question thee,
  • that thou be the way thou title?
  • How could I demand thee to not feast?
  • After all, I too had to hunt,
  • so I could have a feast.
  • Albeit, I had not done it for fun!
  • Perhaps, I could feast on grass,
  • so my prey could live,
  • but I could become grass,
  • and would not be able to make a beep.
  • Thus I could not stop thee,
  • from being what thou had become.
  • As long thou had not bothered me,
  • I could care less where thee had come from.
  • In the end the hunter must make hunts meet,
  • could not allow the prey to flight.
  • Failing to make hunts meet,
  • the hunter might not see another night.

Speechless

This poem depicts the feeling that I had when I got to read the grueling content therein of “THAILAND: Muslims in the South are slaughtering Buddhists in order to ethnically cleanse the area (WARNING: Graphic Images)” blog post.  I condemn (although I’m a nobody) all violences!!!  I don’t see how any violence would solve anything, because violences in general only breeds more violences.  Of course, the argument goes that if one side would do enough terrors, more so than the other side, then the other side will give up in terror.  I doubt that will be the case if the other side doesn’t have a choice in defending themselves.  Plus, violence such as killing is so uncivilized, and here I thought we humans are better than this.  Aren’t we nowadays have easier access to education than centuries ago?  Aren’t we humans know what peace mean?  If peace mean peace, why on earth peace has to let violence leads the way?  Sure, you can say violence first, peace after, but I refute such a thought.  To me, violence first means hatred can be spread farther…  there is no guaranty that violence first can solve anything.  Nonetheless, if all sides use peace first, only peace can derive from peace.  It is almost, if not 100%, a guaranty that peace will always derive from peace.  I think killing is the worst of the worst that there is for being human.  Killing will never be justified for anything.  If a God wants someone to kill another human being, he/she doesn’t deserve to be my God!  Period!!!  Us humans face tough life from the day we born, certainly we don’t really need violence to be the additional bit to the tough life equation.  Survival of day to day life is already so tough, because not everyone is lucky to be born into a wealthy family or meeting the best opportunity in life.  Most likely, many people will be sweating their ass off just to make ends meet.  The unfortunates might have to face terminal diseases.  Yet here we have senseless killing in the name of God.  It’s just plain wrong!  Isn’t a spiritual belief supposed to be peaceful?  I think I should rephrase that!  Aren’t all spiritual beliefs supposed to be peaceful?  Anyhow, if you like, please enjoy the poem right after the break!

  • Rumor had it,

  • Not a single word can define it.
  • Sadistic!
  • Animalistic!
  • And yet I just know about it.
  • Shaking my fist at this animalistic shit!
  • Idiots!
  • Got disgusted!
  • Only animals would do it.
