The Cry Of An X'mas Owl - Poem by Nasarudheen.P. Parameswaran

As the cry of an owl, i cry

to awake people snoring,

to warn of imminent evils.

But, of obsessed identity

as bewitched devils sleep

they breath out alcohol.

The disobedient children

Leaving words of the Qur'an

and of the Bible crave wine

and a life with selfish harlots.

Empiricism cuts Spiritualism-

the thread that unify all-

and prevent the fall

ENDS as wild-cry my call.

    Unfortunately drunkenness is widespread even among teenagers! Alcohol has become a status symbol for every function! How many families end up in wrecks because of addiction to liquor! All heart felt cries go unheeded! A great write! (Report)Reply

    Promotes this devil for revenue
    and became the symbol of status
    others are untouchables and outcast
    among civilised society
