Lawless World


Streets paved with blood
From the murders and the rapes
of a lawless world

Our governments send the troops
around the world
Fighting not for justice
but for the oil
And anything else
they can call their own

While the murders
and the rapes
rule our streets

    it is the worldwide situation, no one can deny. in 1977-78 i had composed one hindi poem and now posted with title Auction. three sentence of that poem is - something sold in the name of justice, something in the name of relief and some thing in the name of inqualaab i.e. revolution and now i am seeing it true. you have sketched the true picture of society.

    So true. You hit points here that are seeming to be overlooked. Always good to have that one poem that can open up other's eyes to what's really going on (Report) Reply

    The world has become a sad place to live in. Mammon rules and the rest can die. Nobody gives a damn anymore, except poets like you and sir Eric and others unknown to me. Great and true poem! (Report) Reply

    it just describes the world as it is..even if we try not to see it that way, it's the truth.
    this poem shows just what actually happens in the world we believe to be nice, even though somehow we've seen how wrong we are..this poem is so well penned.. (Report) Reply
