Treasure Island

Nasarudheen.P. Parameswaran

(8.8.1952 / Manakad)

Pay and Use

Justice loves injustice
Doctor loves disease
Foreman loves damages
Livelihood for the sages.
I cry for justice bold, sold
In deaf ear for years old.
Justice or my lawyer, unjust
Put off hearing, file in dust.
Democracy or Bureaucracy
Suffocate in ugly Autocracy.
Political labour; unions cruel
Compel the subjects crawl.
Equality, freedom, justice
Sweet for poster slogans
Pay and use roads lead us
Pitiably to the island Mess
Of Fuss, hiss; kiss of miss
As frogs spring over Bliss.

    Justice loves injustice
    Doctor loves disease
    Foreman loves damages
    a contradiction that looks absurd, but that's the reality
    which one would not exist without the presence of the other, inseparable bond
    really a thoughtful poem

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
