Charade - a Poem

Charade - a Poem
By Mahbubul Karim (Sohel)
November 19, 2012

Don’t tell lies in verse
Or ruminate the joys
Of birds, flapping wings
Expanded over dawn
And sheer non sense

Can you count the stars
In a night of phosphorous sky?
Can you look at photos
Of agonies and cries
Over mangled bodies
Of babies wrapped
In eradicated flags?

You may choose to avert
Eyes and ears
Precious time of yours
Twaddle into the realm of
Fictitious equivalence
While the loopy siren
Screams the tune
Of a distorted farce
