Rock - a Poem

By Mahbubul Karim (Sohel)

As if the earth weren’t round
The ocean weren’t blue
As if the sky has changed
Into pale greyish hue

Tumbling once
Tumbling twice
Tumbling so many times
Like scurried mice

Walking into thunder
Splattered drops of rain
Deafening blast of silence
Brings in zodiac chain

As if the Mayan Calendar ends
In prophecy foretold
As if doomsayers’ 2012 doom
Secrecy too bold

Ticking clock
Freedom knock
Sea of protests in Persia
Guns and bullets,
For raging rock
