Treasure Island

V P Mahur

(Apr 16,1964 / Siyana (UP) , Bulandshahr, India)

New Century


The twentieth century
Passed in a great fury
Of war and battles
In struggles and rattles
The worst ever the experience
The greatest ever menace
Of man’s thoughtless acts
And unfair selfish pacts
The humanity was ashamed
But who was to be blamed
For all looked like conspirators
Devils and agitators
But let’s come forward now
Forget all those blemish paw
Be sensible if not for us
For sake of next generations
Whatever we sow in the land
Would they get in their hand
Have we nothing good for them
Only the fiery river with no dam
Let us welcome this new century
Without none of the trickery
We don’t want our name
To be ugly and defame
Don’t wish to be cursed any more
By our offsprings for all sore
As we curse our ancestors
For all inhuman factors

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
