The World Is As It Is! - Poem by Mrityunjay Jha

The World Is As It Is
An Unaccustomed Place!

Birds Fly
Dogs Bark
The Sun Rises
The Moon Glows
The Sky still Blue.

Child Cries
But, Mother gives no milk.
Doctor no sympathy.
And, Dies!

The Gun Is In Its Glory
Camps Stuffed.
Men In Power have no Shame!
Still busy in Talks, Tanks and Tyranny.

On Sundays
Children in parks and play
Grown-ups say that Old Prayer
Valuable, Yet Useless,
Humans forget
How to relate
Prayers With Parleys!

With a few fingers
Up and Down
The World Comes Around!

Life Beams with meaning
When The Focus Remains between:
Tahrir-Square To Time-Square

Democracy Deprives!
Rich Riches
Poor Perishes.
The Gap
Is The Only Map
Nothing Changes besides.

The World Is As It Is-
An Unaccustomed Place!
