Peace Has Gone To Pieces! - Poem by PARTHA SARATHI PAUL

Buddha, peace has lost its charm.
Peace has lost its way in heavy traffic;
hog-driving and snarl-up in a pitch melting road.
Peace is dumb before deafening DJ in midnight merriment.
Peace is broken into pieces by non-stop slogans
of lay-off workers, stripped women and so many;
victims of domestic violence and let-down lashed egos.
Peace too must fear AK-47 and 3 not 3 deadly cartridges;
playmates of serpent militias and hushed extremist mines.
Peace is nowhere; neither in wealth nor in poverty.
If a mind has two wide open eyes and soul awake
all the little attained peace will lose its meaning....
Buddha, this head bows before your holiness
but peace now sounds merely another leap-service!
