Drum Of Freedom - Poem by Md. Asadullah

Freedom, freedom they shout,
freedom, freedom they say.___
Obsessed with freedom!
Freedom, freedom night and day.___

They have erected and they
show large statues of freedom.___
Freedom, freedom they sing like
hymns and ever beat the drum.___

Bombings, theft and dacoity
disguised in the name of freedom.___
Killings, torture, rape all are fine,
just shout freedom, freedom.___

But are they themselves free?
handful rule them with a glee.___
People of money and media and
walls of prejudice and lies I see.___

Few have taken them as hostage
and they've made world unfree.___
I pray for their freedom so that
entire world becomes free.___

    So long men remain selfish, and want to enjoy the fruit of others sweat a toil, freedom will remain an illusion. No body
    is really free. But what you have vividly painted is truly, a miserable existence. killing, torture, rape are fine, just shout
    freedom, freedom- - -is but the thieves are on board, and God help the victims. we only can pray and wish them success.

    Again, words of wisdom.

    I never heard of dacoity before, it is good to learn new words, but it would be better for the world and freedom if such words were not needed.
