Let men make not a jungle in a city


A jungle in the mid of a city
We did not know this
Till yesterday evening
When a female photojournalist
Reached there
With an idea to expose
A gang of antisocial elements
She was unaware of the danger
Of this abandoned concrete jungle
Which housed wild animals
It was a haven for untamed creatures
As she entered the premises
With a young male colleague
These animals made use of hidden
Discarded concrete caves
To beat her colleague and immobilize him
They then invaded her privacy
Tore apart her pride
Threw her in that least visited place in dark
When the world came to know of this cruelty
Animals left the scene to safety
Animals will soon be caged
Is yet another story
But what troubles most is
That this commercially busy financial capital of the country
Did not know this long
There exists a jungle in the mid
And dangerous animal species visit there
It is a shame on entire male society
As the masculinity is the weaponry
Used in this robbery
I have nothing more to say
But pray that
Let descend wisdom on men
That women are their nature’s gentle gift
And they deserve soft gentle handling
With all kindness and love
Men receive from them
Let men make not a jungle in a city

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
