Cries never to be heard


Are we horrified
should we be horrified and ashamed
there is no doubt now
we have a share in this atrocities

discovery of mass graves
abandoned detention camps
hidden far from sight
location so remote

Wang Kelian in Perlis
500m from the Thai border
a state park protected
with rangers on patrol

How could this go unseen,
war-type detention
guard towers
ringed by barbed wires and wire mesh

harsh existence with steep terrain
most cruel accommodations
confined in cages
are enforcement officers in cahoots?
