Royal And Moral - Poem by Naveed Akram

Yes, the leader of princes is a lightning bolt,
And women gaze at the righteous man
Who thunders at people in poetry.

No, the many-sided triangle of mathematics
Is not real when encountered by the nation,
For it is like an odd shape to matter to the scientist.

A prince is uniformed by the army, and the scientist
Is all black because of the night and the stars
That shine like the women in the country.

Who thunder-claps now? Is it women who applaud
The men of royalty? Or does a pious gentlemen
Pray for moral teaching to happen again?
