How much more blood must we spill?
Do you want an ocean?
How many more lives must we lose?
Can you count the stars?
How many more men must be tortured?
Is animal cruelty more grave than genocide?
How many more women must be raped
and babies forced into their wombs only to be ripped out?
Have we not been violated since birth?
How many more children must be orphaned?
Is a cat more deserving of a home than my child?
How many more tears must we cry?
Have not our rivers been flooded?
How many more prayers must we offer?
Are they not our sighs that rise when it rains?
How many more petitions must we sign?
Are not our butchered limbs enough?
How much higher must we pile our dead bodies
for you to take notice of our plight?
Soon we will all die and no one will be left
to collect our corpses or sign this off
