A Nation Shamed - Poem by Dr. Yogesh Sharma
There is a country drowned in lust and shame,
There people, like wolves, dance through the misty dark-night;
And sadly, in the midst of it, there is none,
That can fight bravely for the cause of right.
And sane speaking, falls before that brutish race;
All sane voices looked down like crying war widow’s tear,
While brute laugh and molest her pale bloodless face;
Stood by in fear muttering his lips in false prayer.
Shrink to cellars, holes, cells’ and dwells;
They shake the chains they wear of steels.
'O God! Speak-that mighty word on wheels;
That has remained silent! Make man our king and us.'
Annoyed, God pulled forth his finger index;
And over the corrupt, He opened, a thousand channels,
