Treasure Island

Jahan zaib

(February 05,1981 / Malakand Pakistan)

Civilized


Civilized
Even these wonderful inventions,
The flying iron birds,
Swimming steel fish,
The nests touching the sky,
Could not prove you are Adam,
O man! You are Milton’s Satan,
Planning to destroy,
Or swerve Adam’s off spring,
From the right path,
Of Humanity
