Death Penalty Quotes (55 quotes)
Spoken Word Poetry: Capital Punishment
We are going to work on the controversial issue of the Death penalty or Capital Punishment. In no way my intention is to gag your ideas thus you will be given photocopies and shown videos either in favour or against. However, I cannot deny I am against this brutal act, a physical and psychological form of torture that has not worked as a deterrent against heinous crimes and that infringes human rights and brutalizes the core of humanity, that is respecting the dignity of a human being.

Since the beginning of time, humans have lived their sometimes grand and sometimes ordinary lives, and have thereafter been laid to rest in countless graves and tombs. Death is something that, in a peculiar way, unites people everywhere, regardless of their social status, race, religious beliefs, or country of residence. This curious aspect of human nature inspired countless famous poets to contemplate, and write about, man's mortality. Famous poets like Emily Dickinson , Ella Wheeler Wilcox , and Mary Elizabeth Frye all had their own unique ways of viewing death and its effect on the living, views that still impact readers today. Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there; I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow,.

You go to your house of worship to your God to pray But that your Government execute people with you is okay When you tell me that all bad people deserve to die Are you trying to say Moses Fifth Commandment is a lie? You tell me you live in a democracy But it does not seem too democratic to me All murder is wrong that you do not deny But in the laws of your Government a life for a life does apply And since with so called lawful executions you wholeheartedly agree You are guilty like many of hypocrisy, The blessings of a God I do not ask to receive But the death penalty is murder that's what I believe And those who believe every murderer should be made to die Without saying so are saying Moses Fifth Commandment is a lie. Hey man So powerful. Report Reply. Share this poem:. Francis Duggan.
