MEN OR BEASTS?

..Men or beasts?

..Men or Beasts?

What have we become, we sons of men,
Now that we’ve made of Earth a killing den?

The lion kills to put meat in his stomach.
The slithering cobra strikes to repel attack.

Neither King Lion that rules the deep jungle
Nor the soaring, sharp-clawed Eagles
Would dare slaughter the rat or stray calf,
Just that they may with blood-mirth laugh!

Why then do men – demon-possessed pack,
Merciless Humans that do humanity lack –
Now slaughter on whims and plunder at will?
Say, can we then call ourselves Humans still!?

Do you think the dead can breathe again?
Or a corpse, nurtured with sun and rain?

These hands with which we share out death
Shall, sure, one day lie, without life’s breath!

    *******SONGS OF TOMORROW********

    For donkey years

    We toiled in hardship,

    That surrounds us like orges!

    Protagonists to stain our hopes and futures;

    And dispose is to fate.

    That craves our root dead:

    Though in a crescendo culvert.

    We arose beyond the hurdles,

    And envisage a future;

    Filled with leisures and pleasures!

    Amid the orges of hardship

    Crawling and cradling into a leap’

    That blossomed into a bliss,

    With joy of a melodious songs

    We sing and dance around.

    • Wow, a poet’s comments….read delightfully. Thanks.
