Hey, Social Networks - Poem by Abdul Wahab
Hey, face- book and other social networks
You do not know how much I loved you
For being friend for those who could not
Play clown in films or TV
Or did not have ill gotten money
To screw up the ad agencies of the virtual world
But here I see who goes to poetry festival
Or do politics you make them a higher poet
With selling and buying
After getting few extra bucks
You bribe them all with thousand ‘'likes ‘'
Where are you whom I loved for being with them
Who are in society brutally marginalized?
Why are you keep changing
And ditching people in the lurch
Slowly drifting away from them who once loved you so much
I, too, took you as my companion
And riding on your shoulders I thought
I could defeat the poison bite of hate
From the people who does not believe in content
But in caste, creed, color and sex
And I hoped I could rise flying on the wings of internet
Beyond the line and above their reach
Who pull legs in seeing names without judging merits,
You must not messed up
With the dreams of all my friends, destitute
And get out from the dirty hands of coterie and groups, oppressing
Otherwise, I have leave you
Thousand times cursing.
