Democracy - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

You took my brothers for interrogation
a long time ago.
During this period
You built the longest Bridge, Tallest Tower, fastest Train
and supersonic Jets,
And shown so many miracles.
But my brothers did not return.
I went to a district Magistrate and explained the matter.
He was simply disappeared.
At last you said brothers were on a pilgrimage.
I searched them in Kathmandu, Bethlehem and Mecca
all over the world.
but there is no any trace of them.

    A mockery of democracy well depicted. What i like about youe poems is taht you don't necessarily talk about ocean, when you're actually talkign about it, you relate it with other visual things.

    Great work!
