Tom-Tom of Time


Let us come and hear the time's tom -tom,
Where are you all please come and come.
Papers after papers as joins viscous gum,
Come on in a manner people form a form.

Judge dear judge on unrighteous work,
Play in middle miracle playing your fork.
Gathering brings here progressive lurk,
Still then everywhere spreads the murk.

Increasing violence breaks the light,
People for small incidence always fight.
How can this take up how can it bright?
Always in day comes unexpected night.

Time does ring and sing time does dance,
Time is the path of life brings the chance.
Time keeps record of truth at a glance,
Time starts the life time does enhance.

Drum of time sounds much oh dear come,
Where are you run and run oh dear chum.
Rain drops fall on you do wash your scum,
Verses of God does chant time's tom-tom.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Time's tom-tom is coming out. Where are you all? Please come and let us hear this together. All people come and join in such a manner that viscous gum attaches paper after paper. You all form a long row that will be out of imagination. Oh dear judge you please judge about unethical and unrighteous practices going on at this time. By playing in middle your fork and by doing miracle you do judge. Gathering of people here brings new scheme which is progressive in nature. Although people proceed with progress at this time ear still we do find darkness everywhere. This spreading of darkness has happened due to increasing rate of violence. Because violence breaks hope and happiness both and this is considered as the breakage of light. This happens because even in small incidence people fight. If such thing will happen how will this up lift? How will it make our future bright? This is just like coming of night unexpectedly in day. Time rings the bell, sings and also dances. Time is the path of life and it brings chance for us. At a glance time keeps the record of truth. Time starts our lives and improves values and qualities within us. "Oh dear all, sound of time's drum comes in fast and you all come in same speed by hearing it. Hey my dear close friend, where are you? Hear this sound and you too also run and run and come as soon as possible. While rain drops fall on you, generally you do wash the mud and dirty things. Time's tom-tom chants the verses of God to wash the dirty things like sins and impurities." This poem is based on such theme and written on special occasion in Brahmapur, Odisha, India and dedicated to the people of the world.
