Hypocrisy - Poem by Akhtar Jawad
We are breathing in a society,
Declining some more with the every new breath,
Hypocrisy that ruled the world even when angles came on the earth,
Is still rotating like electrons,
In various orbits,
Around the nucleus of all the ethics,
The orbits whether legislature, judiciary or executive,
Have the same electron of money.
Properties of matter depend on the electrons,
That dance in the outermost orbit,
And not on the nucleus, may be beautiful and nice,
We are chasing the money,
We are breathing for money,
And there is no exception in it.
I can see various elements,
Of periodic table!
May be a scholar of ethics,
A justice or a general,
A dirty politician,
No doubt in it, all is hypocrites!
Being a common man,
I am a little better,
Not enjoying powers to blackmail,
No arms no guns, not even law of necessity,
No media on my back,
Thanks God, I am not a yellow journalist,
I am not a justice or a general,
I am not a politician or an executive,
I am not a scholar, who delivers a sermon,
I am a common poor man,
Enjoying only few and limited joys,
And insufficient money to meet the both ends,
Thanks God my pains and problems are also a few!
I am living with a peace of mind,
No powerful man knows the insect,
Off course, sometimes in explosions on the roads,
I am often killed or injured,
I don’t complain, that was written in my fate.
Who can fight with a deaf and dumb, cruel bind write!
Dear powerful men,
I just want to remind you all,
Above all the laws, power and arms,
There is a natural law,
Nature is slow but when activated,
It reshuffles the universe,
Including this earth,
That is what I found in all Holy Books.
