Carpetbaggers - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan

Make me sleep among the wolves
The night fox with all cleverness
So the sympathy was that she was hungry.
The flowers have gone mellow
Leaves are curling walls of impunity
Lo! for the a vigil to find the true self
Self shall vanish as pain is a joy.
Unless to the one who lost all against the nature
And when the carpetbaggers
Would pull from underneath the water and mud,
Every bit of existence buried in memories.
Be drowned for some natural cause
Or else get killed on the street
Or else some one your home to grab
Or bitten by a snake hiding in the corner.
The open sky was such a joy to look to
The children were playing hide and seek.
They did carry bowls to ask
I did cry for pity on myself
I did cry for so many layers, freezing me inside.
