Blindspot

Quaid-Uz-Zaman 1954 (Jamalpur)



here no critics
but blindfolded beings to
the follies plenty;
no man but people castrated praising the mightiest empowering the evil hands stronger and stronger.

lusts and greeds to the highest peak
humanities rolling over the barren grounds;

here all goes in the name of development
all in the name of human rights
of peace
of
'freedom of speech'
of sustainable growth and cherished goals
round the clock and
round the tables with frothy talks of
accountability,
transparency
integrity
with the ladder of peoples faith-
stepping towards the fascism.

gagging the truth distorting the facts
eliminating the rivals and with the play of mischievous fine arts
we are siphoning off
the blood,
money
and doing all the possibilities, impossibilities the best;
of so many "ism" have had we tried
now we are on the track of dehumanizing
churning out darkness from the light
and going to be swallowed by
a shivering hidden star.
