Cowardly Ways - Poem by Naveed Akram

Cowardly as amazements we run in divergent ways,
Clumsy and alluring with brightness and corrosion;
The cruel crabs enter the highways of courage,
Nauseating as a crustacean, madly in love.
Lacking all madness afterwards, we laboured night
And all day, always in majestic persuasion.
Marked and obnoxious were the heretics of joy,
Lame as a macho crow, a little heaven was in the way.
Kindly out of known wisdom the crabs became eaten,
Like the erosion of the seas and weeds of the deep sea.
