Human Jungle


On a cold winter evening,
There was a dove with no wing,
Looking at sky,
Asking Him why?

It was cloudy,
Very gloomy,
And across the windows,
She saw a flock of crows,
They were humankind,
With nothing in mind,
In the fading light,
They were in delight!

Oppressing on a dare,
They were taking no care,
With time passing,
The kids' laughing,
The poor's crying,
The Lord's yelling,
And His warning,
The sun's shining,
Where it's rising,
And is setting,
No care with the moon,
Singing out of tune!

They were working,
And were playing,
Eating, laughing,
And were crying!

They were doing,
All every thing,
Save for thinking,
On their being!

No one caring for the poor, the old,
All what's seen was the gold and cold!

All were there so wise,
But getting shut-eye,
And closing their eyes,
To the how and why!

No one seeking,
The peaks and the ups,
And not looking,
For the mountaintops!

Finding the world of humanity,
In dark, free of any charity,
The dove,
With love,
Felt unhappy,
And like jelly!

She asked the Lord with courtesy,
For His Blessing, Help and Mercy!

She called on Him,
To forgive them,
Give them a chance,
To ruin their fence,
To save their face,
Well, in any case!

    i enjoyed the rhyming and the flow, but maybe a lot of the meaning was lost in translation.....or maybe the meanings were hidden somewhat from me (who looks at an apple and calls it an apple) .
    thanks for sharing. :) my favorite lines were the first four, but i didn't see the rest of the story clearly; maybe it is getting too late at night and this old man needs to go to bed? (Report) Reply
