Treasure Island

Freedom and struggle


Democracy has no place
In this ignorant forest
Where lives only wild animals
To hunt for target on arrival

How much expenditure?
On electioneering tenure!
Who know what shall be the result
Country shall again represent as weakly built

Poor may resent
But how long may remain absent
These people will offer some grain and wine
He will feel timely ok but not always fine

Drum beats may come to an end
Foes there will turn as friend
The booty shall be shared conveniently
The issues shall die softly

What is problem with women?
They will be happily driven
With some hollow promises
And again same misses atrocities

They have amassed wealth
So no effect on their health
They will eat your share too
This needs no proof

Democracy should die
Natural death and not survive
One king or dictator is tolerable
To maintain heard earned freedom struggle

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
