The Pen is Mightier than the Sword or Bullet!

Following the aftermath of what transpired between protesting UPNG Students and PNG Police, the international community has condemned the shooting of students.

There is also overwhelming support in PNG for the students as evidenced by postings on other social media outlets. Bruce Horick, who is a former UPNG student, after reading in the news of what happened, he put pen on paper and wrote this poem. The poem was published online by PNGLoop.

I Fight For You Too by Bruce Horick.

I fight for you too

My brother in blue

Cold metal in your hand

For your future too I stand

I bleed for you too

Friend in combat shoes

That our kids may grow strong

And joy will be their song

I die for you too

Comrade in sky hue

As you aim death towards me

I’m fighting to set you free

I mourn for you too

My wantok trutru

You follow orders from above

Mine’s from patriotic love

I plead for you too

Brother cop, yes you

Our leaders have misled us

And stepped us into the dust

Would you stand with me too?

My blood in navy blue

Reach out and hold my hand

And let us take back our land
