The Vulture Lands - Poem by Rahman Henry

Our days are stones that invite bloodshed
And the nights are brutal with nightmares

We, the people, liked fairy
But mistakenly choose a witch

Now she has hatched a lot of vultures
And grabbed the entire lands

We have nowhere to go
Nowhere to come back

The peninsula once we called a heaven
Has transformed into a Vulture Lands

    Hats off to you for such a portrayal of humanity's self inflicted lacerations. Now, the question is how to get rid of this orgy that is going on since long: ....a heaven / Has transformed into a Vulture Lands (Report) Reply

    We don't know how to, sir; but we are still struggling to get rid of. Thanks a lot and wishes, dear poet. Best regards.
