Struggle For Freedom And Democracy - Poem by Rahman Henry

Bangladesh, a safari for the rulers,

Where struggle for freedom and democracy
Never ends

Where people are the fatal deer
That running away towards a lion
To get rid of a tiger
And Vice-versa

Where devils sing the angel's song

Where under every footstep
There is a freshly grave

Where the entire land is a graveyard

Where the dead men and women dwelling
As if alive they are!

Bangladesh is a land of sneakers
Where struggle for freedom and democracy
Never ends

Topic(s) of this poem: freedom, people, struggle

    I know this poem is about Bangladesh, and I know you are a poet, so I am reading this as universal. Your lines perfectly reflect the government of the country I live in, and I suspect every country in the world. I especially love this line: Where devils sing the angel's song. Always they say at the end of their lies: and may God bless america. (Report)Reply

    It is important to post poems such as this; to not only tell the rest of the world about the plight but let them know how lucky they are not to experience it. Thanks, Rahman (Report)Reply
