they unlock the secrets of the nucleus
and threaten to obliterate the world
they swear allegiance to their country
and institute Holocaust
they unmask the terrorizing enemy
and reveal their very face
now, see their iron fist
bleeding our pockets dry,
savaging our muted kind,
condemning our lonely lives.
they are short of castigating us
for the tsunamis, heatstrokes, mudslides
wherein people died
without prior notice.
desperate to strike a world balance,
they raid the margins
for we multiply
without giving birth.
even at their resounding failures,
they won’t let us take over the earth.
