Hating anonymously

 

Sorry, he wouldn’t know Viet Kong
Enough to hate them in their faces.
It is difficult to hate anonymously.

Napalm made soft pulp of all faces.
They all looked same in the jungles.
He preferred known faces in a ring.

(Legendary boxer Mohamad Ali who passed away yesterday had refused to be involved with the Vietnam war saying “Sorry I have nothing against the Viet Kong”)
