Treasure Island

Subbaraman N V

(31st July 1941 / Karaikkudi - Tamilnadu- India)


War, war everywhere
Sure has to be stopped somewhere
None thinks anywhere!

Dreadful end of war
Terrifies not the powers
Surely painful scars!

War to be condemned
Anywhere in the vast world
Lest bound to be doomed!

World can not prosper
Unless anti war forces
Reign high with fervor!

War against war sure
Need of the time and people
Can be by minds pure!

Wars with purposes
At the cost of lives precious
By the minds vicious!

The world without war
Is a dream of the noble
Remains cry afar!

Wicked thinks of war
Noble dreams of peace and poise
World has wickeds all!

War and peace in turn
Make the people writhe in pain
Let the wars be burnt!

War the creation
Of all the satanic minds
Brings all destruction!

War the creation
Of wicked minds of the world
Cause of destruction!

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
