Woe Oracle (for the Punisher)

Woe to you who rule with an iron fist
drenched with the blood of thousands of people including street-children
executed by your death-squads in squalid slums of your city
with the applause of many who live in comfortable subdivisions.
You tell us this is the price that must be paid
so that we can walk the streets at night without fear.
Now you want to continue your killings spree all over the land.
Do you think that your crimes and sins have been absolved by your election?

Woe to you with your clenched fists
that will soon be smeared with the blood
of thousands and thousands of your brothers and sisters
whose right to life and due process you deny
so that you can walk the streets at night without fear.
Now you ask everyone to move on and to unite. For what?
In order that the death squads will multiply their serial mass murder?
So that your idol can carry out his revolution from the center like the late dictator?
Is your voice really the voice of God? Which god are you talking about?

Woe to you who put your trust in a man
accused of murder and plunder
whom you believe can save the nation and get rid of crime and corruption.
You ignored your conscience and embraced your dark side.
A time of reckoning will come
when the biggest criminal will be held accountable
including those who allowed him to continue the mass murder.
Don't give the excuse that you did not know what you were doing.

A time will come when the punisher will be punished.

Speak truth to power, father. I'm praying for you. You are a courageous voice crying out against a terrible evil.
