Prayer To New Regime

Where merit is not trampled and ruling chief is not worshipped;
Where dealers of terror do not assault the pride of freedoms:
Where existence is not fixed to the whims of advocates,
Where vultures of hate do not rove around.

Where the cactus of disgrace does not flourish,
Where the corrupt hands do not defile the national assets:
Where the cadaver dives back through the womb,
Where but the dead can kiss the not yet born.

Where space is not gloomy between a start and a finish,
Where passers by are not fiery and mad like the rough roads;
Where mothers do not kill their child before it ever was born,
Where never to be deliver daughter, so mad in ways.

Just like a balm that cures or a needle that repairs,
A friend that remains dear than any brother,
Very honest and not the same as earlier,
Nation can depend on you to answer when she calls.

Where the dreams of youth do not cease flowing,
Where gloom does not silence hope in the din of empty slogans,
Where masses believe in you and stand in safe side,
Where You usher in new light; wonderful and bright.

Aura of your honesty inhibits in the streets of nation,
Under the border-less sky; lofty, pleasing, unique and enthralling.
Where the lass moves without fear and hammer justice hit for all,
Where domain of yours, assures a reassuring forte for lines I write.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
