Treasure Island

Sushil Kumar Tripathy

(11th November 1963 / Odisha State in INDIA)

Beyond Carnivores


They, the innocents
Can not say through tongue
Express by innocent eyes
Expect from every one
Let them live.

We, the human beings
Reached at the top
Of the ecological pyramid
Exceeded more and more
Form the top carnivores
Should we be called carnivore?

Carnivores kill them for food
But we for pleasure
Bloodshed wounded body
In deep jungle asks for help
Human being moves with knife.

Cruelty counts
With dwindling face
In a geometric progress
Extinction knocks at the doorstep.

The innocent eyes in wild
Waiting for a hearty smile
Can we able to provide?

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
