A Dream Or True Reality...? Poem by Afzal Shauq

A Dream Or True Reality...?

Rating: 4.9

I don't know
if it was my dream or reality?

that all the men were seen
with long tails
big ears
and horny heads
stepping on four legs
grazing... few
roaming.... few
and fighting... more
some where in a jungle of
leafles trees

while in the mean time
the animals of different kind
who were found
not talking to each other only
but also were walking
unexpectedly on two
with some critical
smiles ofamazing success
and were forwarding hand to hand
towards the empty cities
to occupy.

Great imagination in this composition. But it is scary to even think what would happen if this were to be true - that is - man tending to become an animal and animals getting transformed into human beings. Already in this world, there are examples to show that man is slowly losing his reasoning ability (as seen from barabaric acts of terrorism) - something that differentiates him from the animals.

Your poem shows us that man on the earth can also become beast in the fate of humanity. We either blame the world however we are also to blame. At the sight of devastation we become corrupted beasts with no control until we see the damage we've caused...
