We Can Build - Poem by Naveed Akram

We can build a nonsensical man
So that ideas become a reduction,
The increase in sin is expertly done,
The symbols of a whitewall are absolute.
We can sell a dozen dreams to lords
Overpowering us in ways too definite.

I want to know when the ideas are innocent,
Like the sowing of seeds and laughing of animals.
The cacophony of monkeys dominates the scene,
A police man has appeared to be my side.
The monkeys are apes of criminal sort,
Little have they known and believed.

The build of a man exercises him,
A crime has elated the women,
But men seem to differ and resolve
Important distinctions by themselves.
Women have been builders of atoms
And men are like apes of the buildings.
