They Say....! ! ! ! ! - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

They say pigeon is a symbol of peace
Then why a country with so many pigeons
Is unrest and fighting wars?

They say peacock is sign of prosperity
Then why African countries with so many peacocks
Is below the poverty line?

They say God is very kind to them
Since they possesses many natural resources
Then why they try to control other countries?

They say God has blessed them with Oil and gasses
Then why they waste it on lighting the streets, whereas
The minds of people are still in darkness?

They say they have natural wonderland of beautiful beaches
Vivid landscapes, exotic flora and fauna with the awesome lifestyle
Then why do they suppress and deprive the rights to their original tribes?

They take pride in their culture, heritage and history
Always remains protective with spiky vigilance over all activities
Then why do they do things that surrounds in mystery?

Reached to conclusion on what they say and what they do are in contrast,
peace for them is another war, prosperity is poverty, natural resources
used for power control, lighting is to nurture the darkness
And yet all mystery remains unresolved.

    This is a chance reading and I'm so glad i did. What they say is so true and what we see is contrast. I loved the lines about the pigeons and the peacock and totally agree with the thirst for power of every sort. Every line is so astutely written. We have so many questions and they have so many answers. Yet every answer sprouts another question. Mr Nehal A 10... (Report) Reply
