Back To Stone Age - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal
I am happy to return to Stone Age
Old intolerance ghost is out of cage
Hatred and violence continue to creates rage
Nothing can be written on simple page
We have not matured and grown with age
Hell bent on rampage and committing carnage
Under the disguise and show cleverly managed
All looked so orderly and meticulously arranged
Does religion permit or allow shaking of faith?
Is it so hollow that compels us to meet with death?
Do we urge more and find berth?
Religions are many or in fact there is no dearth,
Faith is not limited and not restricted to self
Confined to books and not retained in shelf
Spreading poison and venom across the holy land
Dirty game is on and seems to go out of hand
Kill the holy animals to inflame the passion
Coupled with Loot, fire, chaos, burning and arson
Still no grief at heart and appeal for peace
Meeting with persons for situations to ease
Where we are heading for and still waiting
Unruly scenes go on without check and un-abetting,
Situation is allowed to worsen and letting things go
Hitting us below the belt with no ice melting so
For ages we have remained different
Not acknowledging the weakness prevalent and inherent
All below the surface but not looking apparent
Not happened in past but raising head in current
We will not shed the difference and say
Not to surrender and no willingness to pray
Try to create hegemony and complete sway
Misguiding public opinion and carrying away
Let unruly rule the scene
Witness the destruction never before seen
No willingness on part or more so keen
Part of the game though actually not have been
Are we heading for disaster?
No one is there to control as master
World is moving with speed and closing faster
why we play the role as that of blaster
Have yet not crossed all the limits?
Do we not undermine His role and not submit?
Can not candle the light and lead the procession?
Show to world the correct path with cessation
Lot of damage has been done to malign humanity?
There is no useful purpose of its continuity?
You may see the reason in its futility
Life with change to find super quality
No need to go backing Old Stone Age
It is nothing but bondage and cage
We should not burn from with rage
Let us start with new resolve on page
