Human Rights


Human Rights

The spokesmen of
Global human rights
Deviating from history
Sing songs of praise
Of ‘developed world’
Upholder of rights
In their common view!

Asian and Africans
West Indians, Latinos
Stand the test of
Human rights violations
What a paradox!

The Western World
Violated every right
Colonised Countries
Upheld inhuman systems
In almost all colonies!

Colonies became independent
Without any backlash
Speak for them
They shun hatred
Against all those
Who violated, always
Their every right!

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
