Let us fulfill


I feel exiled
From motherland for while
The blame war is on
The golden days are gone

Why such change?
All of sudden without seasonal change
What has happened to people?
Rape and murder that opposes or struggles?

Day time murder of political leaders
No trace of single offender
The system has broken down
The corruption is largely known

Find no light in summer
The patients only suffer
The children and old people seem helpless
Where is good governance?

Justice takes years
Normal men fear
When will they get reprieve?
Everybody feels deprived

Let us fulfill their dream
Provide two times meal
Let us not use words that are overstated
Poor people should not feel being cheated

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
