What is Peace?
Will peace be on earth while the sons
of misery are slaving in the fields to
feed the strong and fill the stomachs
of the tyrants? Will ever peace
come and save them from the
clutches of destitution?
What is peace? Is it in the eyes
of those infants, nursing upon the dry
breasts of their mothers in cold huts?
Or is it in the wretched hovels of the
hungry who sleep upon hard beds and
crave for one bite of the food which
the priests and monks feed
to their fat pigs?
