Corrupted Beauty


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!

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
