POEM: TIME FOR ACTION

September 15, 2008

By Tsoltim N. Shakabpa

No more talks
Talks that fall on deaf ears
Talks that go in one ear and out the other
Talks that are for appearance only

No more talks
There is no more need for talks
Talks that go just in circles
Talks that are just paralytic

No more negotiations
Negotiations that crumble and fall
Negotiations that get blown in the wind
Negotiations that get swallowed up

No more negotiations
There is no more need for negotiations
Negotiations that end in the ashes of stalemate
Negotiations that only end in sightseeing, wining and dining

Time for action
Time to do or die
Time to win or lose
Time to sink or swim

It is time to face the truth
Time to face the facts of life
Time to fight for Tibet's freedom
Time to physically regain our kingdom

Win we must our rightful freedom
Through actions non-violent or violent
For there is no substitute for freedom
No match nor replacement for our kingdom
