Hello Mr. Terrorist Poem by Preetam Shetty

Hello Mr. Terrorist

Rating: 5.0

Hello Mr. Terrorist, how are you,
You don’t know me, to you I am new.
I am a child eight years old, living in dismay,
Right from the day, you took my daddy away.

My mom keeps crying, all day and night,
She doesn’t smile, I don’t like her plight.
When I am hungry, I ask for bread and honey,
But she just sobs, says there is no more money.

You know downstream, there lives a brat,
He always used to eye, my ball and my bat.
Yesterday he snatched both; he gave me a smack,
Nobody to save me, please give my daddy back.

Daddy used to get me chocolates, after work,
I’ll give them to you, I shall show no smirk.
I’ll give you El, my favorite teddy,
All I ask of you is, please give me my daddy.

I know you snatched him, In the name of your fight,
But I need my daddy, I am sure that is my right.
I plead before you, in the name of your own lad,
Also in the name of someone, whom you call your dad.

Wow! ! ! great poem with a very sensitive theme but that is what we stand for as poets, to be a voice of the voiceless and to confront things that pple find difficult to talk about. well expressed.. keep it up

A very very touching poem.you expressed the feelings of a sad and a desperate boy in perfect way! ! Yes, the father is the mainstay of safety and tranquility in the person's life.. I hope all the Terrorists would disappear from our world and let children enjoy living with their families. a TEN indeed! ! Merna

Beautiful Preetam. You have done it. So manly your approach and so softly you have hit the heartless heart-runners- really you have got the skill of appealing humanity in a lucid way. It may be, in course of time, this boy becomes another terrorist to revenge his parents death. May it be. Any way, you have again proved your social sense properly with your aesthatic ability in field of poetry. Thank you, write more.... 10+++ Apoet B
