Aftab Alam (15 th April 1967 / PRASTOLI, DORANDA, RANCHI, JHARKHAND, INDIA)
Away from Lively Fence
The cobra stood hooded and hissed
I didn't lift my one of the back leg,
Like a dog. I feared and then pissed
Dogs, try to make their own kingdom
A war of smell or an ol-factory peg
But we rely upon rotten ugly wisdom.
How fearful we are, can’t be explained?
Is fear dwells in mind without restrained?
With this, I came to know, why peace lost.
Our behaviour and essence and the sense
So uncertain and for this we are away the
World of beast and away from lively fence
