Smile, Don’t Scorn - Poem by Naveed Akram

One smile is enough to smile a mile,
A crocodile should not scorn the exile.

One river bows to the future of that isle,
One sees the seas and finds them in the meanwhile.

One young lout has gaped at the horses of guile,
When the lifting of oceans has been so infantile.

When will the Nile speak of the elephants in file?
Some have conspired and written on their lifestyle.

One smile is enough to smile a mile,
A crocodile should not scorn the exile.
