The rockets are falling in the oceans
But the prices of goods are rising higher!
The children are paying higher tuitions
The value of teachers is going lower!
The borderlines are more than nations
The working days are lesser than holidays!
Wearing torn cloths has become fashion
The useless youths are called playboys!
The rivers are seeking oceans to take rest
The money is seeking the rich to be safe!
The worst poems are selected as the best
Only air is coming in the public water tap!
The young donkey is sold at higher rate
Child labourers are purchased at lower rates!
Some say that God knows our fate
I don’t know why a prayer hall has a lock!
All the fame may belong only to God
But there are many orphans on the roads!
Is it not a real shame for that great god?
The holy books have meaningless words!
