People Next Door-4 Poem by Subhas Chandra Chakra

People Next Door-4

Rating: 4.9


I am your neighbour
When your house is
Under fire or in flood.

I am your neighbour
When your kid is sick,
Needs a bottle of blood.


I am your neighbour
When goons attack
And rob your golden chain.


I am you neighbour
When a gang teases
And threatens your women.

But where had you been
All these days?
While I had been a bare foot
On the burning ways? ?

Not a cake!
When hunger kills my kin,

Not a cloth!
When poverty chills my skin,

Not a coin!
When rains soak my walls,

Not a brake!
When mobs peep at my girls,

Not a word!
When cameras hunt my wife
Scantily clad! !

Not a brake! When mobs peep at my girls, Not a word! When cameras hunt my wife Scantily clad! ! Yes we are callous to our neighbours. Sad to read but true.

Not a cake! When hunger kills my kin, Not a cloth! When poverty chills my skin, Not a coin! When rains soak my walls, Not a brake! When mobs peep at my girls, Not a word! When cameras hunt my wife Scantily clad! ! Yes these insensitive people are dark spots in our society. This attitude has to go. 10++ for this poem shared.
