What Is Left Behind - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

What shall be left?

“Come with shopping list of weapons”
You will get concessional coupons
Pick anything from aircraft to machine guns
You can have it from place and need not run

Let Pakistan have more atom bombs and threaten
Let hell shower bullets on their citizens
Let Chinese people remain with half pent
And share common place in tents

What do they think in their mind?
Do they want destruction of such kind?
When not even blade of grass shall grow
The cities may disappear from face of earth with single blow

Every now and then you are reminded of “dire consequences”
Whereas terrorist kill in hundreds the innocents
Their presence is felt in every part
Still they prefer the journey in cart

Super powers play politics of conveyance
They kill daily in aerial surveillance
You get reprisal in deadly form
The country is felt apart and torn

So what shall be left on earth?
Except destruction and deaths
Will we able to breathe easily with peace?
The answer is clear”No” for any race

    Ever heard of Zeitgeist Movement? That's my only hope for future but we have to teach such transcendental ethics first

    Yes, mankind is very sick in a way. With weapons of mass destruction as their food. Sad; but, that's how it is. Nice work. (Report) Reply
