Treasure Island

Not vocal


We are back to Stone Age
Nothing can be written on page
Father keeps relation with daughter
Whole world watches it with anger

Mother marries her own son
With whatever she may have the reasons
We are lowering the true image
Can you appreciate it at any stage?

Girl child abuse now has become common
Age factor has disappeared and gone
Neighbors can not be trusted now
Seeds offer different plant even after nicely ploughed

Whole of culture has taken deep dive
Where else we go and strive?
For change in mental outlook
And present it with good look

Night harassment for women has become routine
Even news papers put it in side line
It has remained as sensational news
Who bothers about outrage and impartial views?

Nothing is secured in democratic system
Autocratic rule has many flaws in its stem
Never in history had we faced such deep moral
People have been muted remained not vocal

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
