Another Poem

I reproduce below another poem written by me and published in Asian Age about 14 years back.


Suddenly in the middle of
the night
I wake up
From my vicious dreams
Of the unfaithfulness of
my faithful wife
Multistoreyed buildings
Engulfed in darkness
People sleeping blissfully
unaware of
Yet another
Multi-crore scam
morning headline
I brood over
My own wasted years
Futility of penning these limes
Unfulfilled love
How shall I get back
sleep again?
At that hour
The Muezzin's call to
In the distance-
That symbol of undying
continuous faith
Acts as a lullaby on my
I become a child
once again.
