Innocent Elders - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

Looking for innocent lovers of a child?
My skin once again is ugly and rough,
Need again an oily bath in a trough,
Some oil on the skin and pleasing the mind,
Taking off dirt of the body and the heart,
Making child fit and looking smart!

Come back with all interesting ignorance
A gun in the right and a hand in my hand,
Hunting a few birds in a grassy land,
More innocence than a child's innocence!
When the child asked to shoot an eagle in sky,
"They live thousands of years, let them fly.

Might have seen Muhammad and Jesus Christ,
Can't kill him, my naughty child,
No uncalled killings, I am mild though wild,
Eagles will be killed by the Antichrist."
"Who is Antichrist and where is he?
How he appears I want to see."

"He is Hitler, still alive not yet dead,
Hiding somewhere and learning magic,
From fifth Vedas in a language terrific,
He'll rise once again when the book is read."
"And who is Hitler, I want to know,
Do you have his photo, can you show? "

"A Nazi dictator, an ugly racist,
Thought he's superior to all other races.
He is the ugliest in many ugly faces!
Quiet, I see a bird I can hunt,
Pick knife from bag, that's sharp not blunt."

(Hindus have four religious tomes, called Vedas, it is believed there is a missing fifth Veda. ……………………….. The only difference I see in allied and Axis Forces is that Hitler's Knives were blunt while Churchill's knives were sharp)

    If we could keep the innocence of a child with us as we aged, the world would be a far better place. (Report) Reply

    This poem in the form of a dialogue between a child and an elderly man brings out many valid truths

    When the child asked to shoot an eagle in sky,
    They live thousands of years, let them fly................... Love the lines! Killing of even a bird is dreaded, but now we live in a world where killing of men is a pastime like hunting! ! Great write!
