Treasure Island

Shujaat Hussain


Capitalism can't sail in the ship of morality
Morality possesses conscience, love and humility

The life of capitalist depends on suppression
Breathless sighs of workers an apparent impression

Greed, gluttony, wrath and creed dominate their passion
Pride of wealth infuses spirit of shameless aggression

Strut with gleam on humanity without fear of hell
Who are on earth about worth of demonic deeds to tell?

Practice the art of making black money into the white
Under the garb of charitable deeds before human sight

Capitalism is the mother of measured wealth untold poverty
Between the earth and the sky becomes their sovereignty

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
