Victory!!!!



VICTORY!
Victory and defeat!
Victory follows defeat
Defeat of sacredness
Sanity and solemnity
When all these forces
Are cornered
Victory comes after
This adversity
The bombs, guns
Or drone attack
Only kill innocent
Who are struggling
For a pie
Do they deserve
To die
For ones caprice
And psychic mind
The diseased minds
Kill people for victory
But they are unaware
That such act never brings a feat
It is certainly an unseen defeat
The blood and sighs
Of one who are sane
Brings only pain
If one snatches others disdain
How could he call a slain
Such acts are never an off beat
And
Such victory
Is followed
By extensive defeat
If they can reckon with!
