>>>Devils' Duel

The nights used to come with buckets of buds
And at dawn they all bloom into dreams
Now twilight brings for us only sounds
And in the morning they turn into
News of deaths from gun shots
To be precise
It is half a century and a decade ago
I have had my last laugh
Or have had a song from my heart
As I have been seeing the devils' duel
Over a tiny piece of land.
Neither I take a bath under the sun
Nor I see my face nor do I see the moon
In protest against the ugliness of human souls
Since the time I have seen
To shed human blood
For a few barrels of greed
Over a drop of little gain.

    Poetry Assignment

    I am assigned to research, and analyse a poem of my choosing. I came across your poem the 'Devil's Duel' which I was very moved by. I chose to conduct my research on this poem. I do need a short biography on the poet/poetess. I have attempted to find research about your character, to no sucess. I would like to know if you are ok with my using your poem for a project, if yes, would it trouble you to send me a short biography for my use?

    With a few strokes of your golden poetic pen, you have highlighted so poetically, the greed of the human heart and mans' inhumanity and blind indifference to his fellow man. The final two lines in the poem bring it all together for me. Superb write! Thank you for sharing, Abdul...

    the devils duel is busy at work in our society today. Just look around at the wars and destruction. for a few barrels of lousy greed.
