Teresinka Pereira on Martin Luther King


In memoriam of Dr. Martin Luther King


May the irascible supremacists

recognize the mud

in which they drown themselves

with their incompetence.

May the pseudo-democrats

notice that heaven flames up

with their hypocrite fights.

May the cowards look around

the tombs and see

the prints of their fingers

that without pulling the trigger

have killed so many human beings

in useless wars caused by their

ambition and unlimited greed.

The wish for peace could have

taken shelter in all of their conflicts,

if we could ever ask the irascible,

the hypocrites, the cowards:

What is your dream?

Teresinka Pereira
