A. Z. M. M. Moksedul Milon Poems
The Middle East: An Acrostic
The fire of wrath has set all things ablaze, Human things now steam up, tyrants cool down, Earth mother cries at Ghibli’s ghastly rage.
My Second Mother
Seven long summers, I slept in your lap, With thousands thirsty bugs in your sari And millions mosquitoes over your head Sucking all my jaundiced blood drop by drop.
An Aimless Journey Of Two Souls
Two heavenly roads diverged into this callous world, I took the one less travelled by; And my soul-mate took the other, Where her car got stuck in huge traffic jam.
My friends and family seem to love me no more, They offer me amorous bottles of poison, And ask me to commit suicide; Drink or not to drink-
A one-man army, Foes being two hundred millions, I won in an hour; With no shield, no sword, no guns,
The whole world is a lunatic asylum, All human beings are insane; I know this world is not mine, Neither am I fallen.
Oh yes, my mother! You are an age-old ragged banner, fluttering in the stormy wind of beastly corruption, over the broken highways and footpaths of hopeless hope, trodden with the spiky jackboots of nasty politics.
My friends and family seem to love me no more,
They offer me amorous bottles of poison,
And ask me to commit suicide;
Drink or not to drink-
Is the deadening question
I have yet to answer.
