Poem: Turning the Innocent into Criminals


(For the Chinese Communist Party)

Turning the innocent
into criminals
the right to speak
into dissent
turning tradition
into superstition
and truth to renounce
and repent.

Turning promises
into poison
China's blue skies
into red
turning conscience
into silence
dreams of freedom
into dread.

Where Innocence Falls

Where innocence falls
hearts poisoned to the eye
where China's walls
hide too many a lie.

Where freedom denied
and the 'party' reigns
where perpetrators abide
and victims without names.

Where bodies broken
and souls defiled
where crimes unspoken
imprisoned without trial.

Where control by fear
any justice curtailed
where blood and tears
leave bitter trails.

Where light paled
and truth repressed
where dialogue failed
and power obsessed.

Where innocence falls
atrocities abound
where China's walls
silence every sound.
