Rookie - 421 Points (Pakistan)

Eid Greetings!


To all survivors
of natural calamities,
to all sufferers
of man-created disasters,
to all affectees
of power-outage,
water-crisis,
law & order,
to all fellows
who have survived
price-hike
as a shooting star,
economic-depression,
suicidal attacks,
(though who knows
what next?)
to all prisoners
who are not criminals,
to all sick
fighting for life,
my learned Teachers,
my all able students,
my poet-friends,
my gentle readers,
in the country,
across the borders,
I offer you all
Eid-greetings!

    A greeting laced with the fatal concoction of what life has become tied up with today. It delivers a welcome message, a message given begrudgingly and with due reservation, pointing to the fear of unknown.
    It is received with open arms nonetheless…. In this spreading blot/milieu of dreadfulness and horror

    Nice…liked (Report) Reply

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
