Godfather!

He dared the sun and loitered with the moon,
His riches enveloped distant land;
He sleeps in the wilderness with no name,
Hi fireworks, a game of shame;
Lame!


His spell vents thunders;
And can blind one’s soul,
He is diverse with many roles;
His heart sealed, and love sold.
Flame!


He butchers humanity in the name of the lord,
Mutilated fleshes are just a road;
To his immense riches and gold;
Mothers breast dried and the world blindfold.
Shame!

You promised peace and water for the meager,
You promised health and happiness for the goer;
I see starvation in the streets of hope and in the wood,
I see blood in your food.
Insane!


Take my labor buy them food,
Return that young, his childhood;
Take my heart buy them happiness,
Long lost love and some kindness,
Heave ho! Heave ho!
Thousand lost on the go;
Mother earth has abundance, let them sow,
Heave ho! Heave ho!
One more lost on the go;
Let him smile let the child grow.

  1. A published author calls me "a fantastic writer". A Thank You would not suffice I guess, I don't know what else to say though. You even went ahead and compared.

    You are as humble as you are skilled.

    So I'm doubly glad you found my writing worthwhile.

    Thank You Shamsud.
