Statue

Statue

 If I were not a witness
 Of the murder of the twin birds
 And had not I faced two floods
 And seen so much human blood to waste away
 And met Babur on the day when the gate of heaven
 Broken into pieces to the barbaric waves
 Then I could have saved enough tears
 To shed over the death of you
 My darling
 And weep at the grave
 Of your dogs which snatched away
 The morsels from the mouth of children from Kabul to Babylon
 From Ahmadabad to Palestine but the ducks
 Of my eyes went dry,
 my darling
 For I cried for Grahame stain
 And his two sons
 In the kingdom of Asoka
 when they were burnt down alive
 No more I could move my mind
 And melt my heart by your sweet romantic words
 As I saw the heinous crimes in Bosnia
 Hard core actions of cruelty in Chechnya
 Now I am a statue
 Unable to meet your kind demands
 And human enquiries
if you can
pardon me , my darling
please!!
