Treasure Island

Khadim Hussain

(27 July 1957 / Lunger Pur Baly, Jhellum, Pakistan)

The Most Dangerous Beast!


The beast has the fangs of a Werewolf
The claws of a tiger.
It never rests, day or night
Once it scents it prey
There is no escape;
It is impossible to be distracted or deceived.

It has insatiable appetite,
Which cannot be satisfied
With a lunch or dinner.

Always on the hunt,
Prowling like a tiger,
Squeezes like the anaconda,
But thinks like a man.

It can survive in any terrain or climate,
The harsher, the more successful it is.
Its natural habitants are the slums
Of Calcutta, Bombay,
Slums of many third world countries.

Many countries developed nations
Think they have eradicated this beast
But it prowls again
Once condition for its natural habitant
Occurs, even temporarily.

The terrifying beast is
Hunger!
