"war against my brother"

My country and I against the world,

Then my clan and I against the country,

My family and I against the clan,

My brother and I against my family

Then my brother and I against each other

You have defined the effects of tribalism with this short poem whereas it would take years for researchers to dig into the fathomless pits of the somali tragedy to come up with a conclusion on the horrors of the somali civil war. Thanks brother

Truth in succinct lines, Abdi-Noor, dysfunctional at best. What is mankind doing? We're wiping out our own brothers and sisters in the name of love; we're driving creatures to extinction; what does man want? To be the last survivor on the planet? Such a lonely existance...powerfully penned heartbreak.

(((HUGS))), love and prayer, Karla.

Reviewed by Andre Bendavi ben-YEHU 7/12/2007

"War Against My Brother" shows the picture of the indifference of all FIVE PERMANENT MEMBERS OF THE U.N. SECURITY COUNCIL. THE LORDS OF INDUSTRIAL WARS; HUMAN DEGRADATION, STARVATION AND SLAVERY.

Keep ringing the bells of JUSTICE, Poet!

In admiration,
