Treasure Island

hasmukh amathalal

(17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

Punitive action

Only intellectuals work in imagery direction
Where exists no ground for any action
Diversity and cast lines persist in real form
People have no courage to know it and be informed

Lot many lessons are to be taught
That we are one nation and peaceful existence is sought
We have no state religion even though may have different regions
We are federal in nature but work on no divide lines

National interest is of paramount importance
Judiciary is considered at watch dog of independence
If corrupt politicians are allowed free hand
They will show arrogance with clear intention to grab

There is air of muffling judiciary
Politicians think it is necessary
It blocks their activities to have supremacy
Rapes, murders, corruption has now more frequencies

“Bring the ordinance” the corrupt politicians has opined
“Curtain the courts from being assertive” they have defined
All political parties have same music to air
They think any break on their role may be unfair

Well, let country go to dogs
Let there remain dark frog
Let country not progress
Let poor die of starvation and face

Is the national wealth private concern of parties?
Why do they claim and lay hand for insecurities?
Can no one restrict their role for misappropriation?
Some of the priorities remain always in questions

Let people come first if it is democracy
Let dictator come if it is autocracy
But let not gangster and corrupt rule the state
He must be banned for life to relate

Let courts rule in their disfavor
Bann them from contesting in future
Let their source of income be brought before
Let their be more punitive actions in store

    Rory Pollaro4 minutes ago I really get what you are saying. I don't think myself a terrible poet and I see poems that are clearly worse get better scores. Not vain, but I think a poem on the fate of a lost couple beats hell out of a poem about a Jelly sandwich. I also hate getting reviews that just say, Nice. I want to learn and improve, to do so, I need honest constructive critique. Comment +1 Read one another's poems with an open mind, don't be scared to tell someone what they're doing wrong, and try to guide one another to a higher field of writing. (Report) Reply

    Donald Rogerson15 minutes ago How do you be liberal and restrict entry at the same time? I usually prefer to set politics aside and keep my opinions on the subject secret. I am neither a conservative or a liberal. Nor am I middle of the road. I take the road less traveled. I avoid the paths of least resistance. I don't follow political trends because I'm a non conformist. On the bright side I'd say your English is very good. On the other hand, when it comes to gender, I'd rather spend my life making love to millions of women only, and let them screw any man they want, because that's pure freedom and love. And it sure beats those fags who'd rather get (Report) Reply

    Sean Spencer12 minutes ago I had a bit of trouble following it, just because of you're writing style, but unless I completely missed the point then I think you had some good points. it seemed to me you were saying that although we all come to this page to share with each other, we also hvae to be sure we don't baby one another. If a poet is to improve, we have to be shown what we're doing wrong. So if that's what you meant, then I totally agree! Comment +1 Better think twice. (Report) Reply

    Powerful message

    Nicely written and I enjoyed the fact that you stated the truth and what you felt about issues in the world that many others have the same issue but may not know how to voice it. That is what I love about poetry. Articulated well too.

    Mr. Mehta spoke his mind and the mind of many others about the political system that has forgotten about the people that it is supposed to protect and serve. His poem was informative and heart wrenching.
