Agent Orange

You are invited with smiles
To taste paradise malls
With warm hugs and open lips
To share consumerised world
Spring blooms and rise
On neo liberal temple sites
Cost of living going up flights
Dried up belies and minds.
Agent Orange and GM foods
Smell around global wide
Children searching peace of slices
for surviving days and nights.
Corporate leading wealth of commons
Talkative politics gathering heights
Hapless peasantry committed suicide
Social rights warming fights.
South end seeking debts and peace
North end mounting nuclear rights
World in combat act of gods
Warlords making global tombs.
