No tertium quid

In search of a morally univocal answer
There is either right or wrong,
No tertium quid, no equivocity

Seek for the truth,
and meet with scandals and horrors
in multivocal clamor

You do not need bombs and bullets
to hush people’s gums and blur the truth
Terror can be masqueraded as substantive laws

Superpowerism as a promotion
of global movement for democracy
A regression of freedom into monarchical dictatorship.

If plongeurs thought at all,
they would long ago have gone on strike
Eric Arthur Blair mutters over his Chardonnay

The truth is diluted like wine
the sheeple are thrown into a quagmire
“Liberty is telling people what they do not want to hear”

Be careful with the gun you pull by Sofia Kioroglou in Pengician

Forgive yourself and each other
Spew hate and watch it slap you in the face
Be careful with the gun you pull
the finger on the trigger may be your own-
but the target might be yourself

Damascus in Syria before the war in Every Writer’s Resource

Damascus in Syria before the war by Sofia Kioroglou-By Every Writer

 

I love spring
Whenever I look out the window
I see a riot of color.

Flowers of all forms and sizes
Blossoming in my garden
after being shrinking violets.

But Nigella damascena
is my favorite reminding me
of Damascus in Syria before the war

Reminding me that the Chaghoura,
the beautiful gazelle will protect me
from snipers, rapists and bombs
