Musings of an incapable


If I remain invisible and Invincible
and undisturbed by sleep and hunger
Starting from my city, I will strive hard
in establishing a crime less society
Frequenting all the dark empires
run by criminals with the support of powerful,
attempts of all theirs in charting and
executing any unlawful deeds will be spoiled
Without knowing who is preventing
holding their heads in frustration
and bringing their tails down in fear
venture never they will again in such acts
Rude shocks are in store for those
who derive pleasure in rapes and lawlessness
Rapists will be punished before their attempts
and rogues will shudder to think about rapes
Women will move safely wherever they want
with all their valuables and vanity in tact
Exposed will be all the black-marketers
who indulge in creating artificial scarcity
and all their hoards will be brought to the notice
of public, judiciary and those in power
to be distributed among people ending scarcity
To safeguard the society, many such things
I want to do but I am weak and powerless

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
