The World We Live In - Poem by md.abdul mannan

The world we live in
Is full of cry
Justice mingling with rusty fossil
And green leaves dry.

Where the rat catches the cat
Cows outflank the horses
Hunter hunts
Hunted remains remorseless

A universe co-copulating
With mundane matters
Ignites hibernation
The sick earth flatters

The sky cries in agony
The air moans in nuclear bustle
The hyenas down trod
With autocratic muscle.

The concreted earth
With cemented eye
Gazing to dehumanized earth
Says, “ oh if I could die”

    concreted earth - no say in anything
    cemented eye - no tears
    dehumanized - ionic when the ground; an nonliving thing sees the people as no longer human
    if only the soil could die!
