IRONY OF PEACE


IRONY OF PEACE


Seer says ‘arms dealer’
May not be healer
Adjudged innocent killer

Maker of metal detector
Bombs disposal kits
Scanning X-ray machine
Close circuit TV
Will lose business of billions
If explosion cease
People will nourish
Melody of nightingale
Rosy fragrance
Refreshing cool breeze

Made of clay
Intellect display
Exporter of arms
How shrewd, talk of balms

Never peace be in their vision
Dollars and pounds are reason
Create chaos, reap season.

When a man establishes peace within his heart
He would have a treaty of peace for global chart.
All evils in the mind appear on the face
Are the stigmas the people can easily trace.

Vultures keep their eyes on orders
Saints and sages of disorders
Preach kick-back and commissions
Far away from human compassions
Sighs, tears, blood, toll and death
Are their sources of wealth.

Follow strategies to uproot peace
And give services of lips to please.

Would that global leaders
Understand their heinous
Crime, cruelty and poisonous
Traits and work for integrity
Nation’s sovereignty
Inspire nationalism
Propagate humanism
With their charismatic power
God be pleased, bounties shower! ! !

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
