Treasure Island

Deependra Kumar Jha

My patience

Last night, I attended a funeral
It was death of my patience

It got 'infected' long time back,
I can't remember exactly when
May be, when the reform process,
got a set-back,
& nation was put to shame

From poll-tricks to politics,
the leaders kept on changing loyalty
'Opportunism' is on agenda,
national pride is not on priority

It's said that history repeats itself,
it seems, we are repeating the history
With un-natural collisions & dirty politics on,
leaders' interest is no longer a mystery

My patience could not take it anymore,
it was on bed rest & facing a tough fight
With overdose of conspiracy, betrayal & compromise,
It finally died last night

(A tribute to the prevailing political situation in NEPAL)

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
