The Venom of Spleen


Ehsan Elahi Ehsan

The venom of spleen has begun to work
Fanaticism is given the name of religious zeal
The innocent worshipers are shot across
And the exuberant speeches are delivered
By those who are responsible for this chaos.
When the votes are bought and sold
Like commodities in the market
No nation can have the patience
To suffer such blows, and instead of
Thinking of the remedies to the real problems,
Of ignorance, unemployment and aimlessness
Ex-court killing are made and the flour is
Distributed on Eids on a cheaper rate
To propagate the devotion of the choleric leaders
To their poor public. It is forgotten
That the insolvent leaders
Can bring no prosperity to a nation
They are only left to brag
How have they once again succeeded
To pawn the whole nation and its great people
To those who have no mission, except to set up
New colonial system, with the force of
Money and deceit.
