Corrupted Beauty - Poem by Perveiz Ali

In this era of computers there is now global villages,
Nations compromise with united economic packages.

Many seek to cement unified and beneficial trade,
Goals to enable world markets in profits to bathe.

Break bread to snap the chains of restricted progress,
Violence, violations and intimidation they address.

Alas! Kashmir land of such sweet beauty still caged,
Occupation by hostile forces dim progress' new age.

All levels of existence dominated by Neanderthals,
Restrictions on all that we do, no fundamentals.

Public officials with no honor or honest dispositions,
Hollow promises of changes with no convictions.

Complaints fall on uninterested officials ears,
A country so proud and lovely brought to tears!
