Poet's crime


We are criminals
we commit crimes with pens
the crime of writing words
may we ever be caught
by the mighty limbs of god

We do welfares
bring peace all around
and, protects the seed of humanity
we may get peace after death
but,
we provide peace to others

Thats only our crime, dear
the only crime, we commit

    Pen is mightier than the sword! It is a weapon and the crimes poets commit is for establishing justice in the world! There is no honour given to poets unlike other forms of writers; this is the fate of God on poets because they are always creative as God! God too is jealous of poets perhaps! Keep it up!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
