Mercy my Lord - A prayer #AtoZChallenge

Inhuman are we,
Insensate, ruthless and vicious
Mercy my lord

We defend rape
A naked woman lying on the street
Intestines lying in a lump outside
Mercy my Lord!

We propagate honor killing
Stone pelting and hanging the lovers
Mercy my lord!

We witness brutal murders – jealousy, road rage, anger
Mum we be, forget it in the next moment
He was a father, a brother, a son, a lover
Mercy my Lord!!

Terrorist attacks
Disrespecting religion, disrespecting motherland
Innocent children, loving mothers, doting fathers, all killed
Mercy my Lord!

Hate politics, bribes, scandals,
All for power and money
Ashes on the funeral pyre
Mercy my Lord!

Cruelty to animals, cruelty to human beings
Atrocity for disabled, old and poor
Mock and jeer
Mercy my Lord!
