Treasure Island

Aftab Alam

(15 th April 1967 / , , RANCHI,)

Whole world is burning


My country is burning
There is flame of hatred
On the stove of faith
Chef frying the trust
We are turning
My country is burning

Whole world is burning
There are guns
RDx in tons
Multi human Bombs
For false martyrdoms
Death is nakedly dancing
Whole world is burning
My country is burning

My stomach is burning
Tongue: tied with intestine
Untie with charity
Why there is disparity
Humanity: whither turning,
My eyes are burning,
Whole world is burning,
My country is burning,

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

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