Treasure Island

Aftab Alam

(15 th April 1967 / , , RANCHI,)

A society is what, we think


A society is what, we form
For it, certain rules are made
Society is for us and we are for it
Laws of society is more or less
Same throughout the earth

Time is what, a scale to measure
We weigh the fate in respect of time
Yet we say, bad time is running
If it is correct, it’s for the individual
And not for the whole society of human kind

Society is made by us with much fuss
Time rules the fate, might be heavens curse
Or be it a heavens boon, good luck
That is sufficient for the Chuck

Why always busy to weigh the fate
At the point of time, early is so late
Go, ride on butterfly and steal colours
From rainbow that keeps colorful colors

A society is what we think and act
Society is mirror of our thought, in fact

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
