    Description:
       Genocide killed more people in the 20th Century than all the wars combined -

    Word invented in the 20th Century from
    Genus = People/Tribe -cide = to kill

    Just to point out.... After the first time it happened and the word was invented everyone kept saying 'Never Again'. Since then its happened several times with the same answer at the end


    Please let me know any thoughts, feelings or anything at all
    Thanks

    Pieces of homes and death.
    Strewn across
    The bloodied walkways.
    Cases, and bags and lives.
    Left behind,
    In those chaotic days.
    Never Again.
    Again… and Again!

    No-one is safe
    As they do their deeds
    People cower as they make their Salute
    How did we let these people pollute
    The world with evil and pain
    Never Again.
    Again… and Again!

    Razor Wire and Chains
    Charred remains
    Children to ashes
    Women to dust
    The Human machines left to rust

    Raping and beating
    On a mission to ethnically cleanse
    The world of all the ‘unwanted’
    Never Again.
    Again… and Again!

    For religious or selfish
    Or whatever the reason.
    Justification cannot be granted.
    The destruction of people
    For little or no gain.
    Why do they play these stupid War Games?

    Gunshots to wake you up in the morning
    Tears to send you to sleep every night
    Holding onto the thing that comforts you
    When is the end of this Genocide due?
    Never Again they've said.....
    Again… and Again!

      I really enjoyed this one as well....I kinda get the feeling u just got a random impulse to write this and at the same time it was really good. I'm right with troy, the never again thing was a nice touch. I think what comes to most ppl when they think of genocide is the Holocaust but in all actuallity some cases just get more attention I guess. nice write,

      this was really good. i liked the "never again" line. when i think of genocide i usually think of Hitler and the Holocaust. so many people slain because they were Jewish. it's amazing how Hitler wanted the entire Germanic race to be the "perfect" race with blue eyes and blonde hair when he had neither of those

    People cower as they make their Salute
    How did we let these people pollute
    The world with evil and pain
    Never Again.

    good job

      This was real, and sad and I think that you have captured this beautifully, your subject is a very powerful one and not everyone can give this such emotions and make you FEEl it like I think that it needs. Very well done. you never disappoint me.

      I like this piece, it has life and personality to it, personally, I'm not an emotional kinda guy, but I can empathise really well, some pieces of the poem I really dig like "Why do they play these stupid War Games?" and the "Again… and Again!" piece, it seems as if you really put alot of thought into it.
