Poem: Dignity

By: Mohammad Jashim Uddin


Cloud, dark cloud everywhere
As light is off and oil is up.
But throwing hands and legs
They have been shouting now and then,
“Have we lost our dignity?”
Oh! Nowhere is it found. Why?
Though fishermen threw nets
To the ash and found burnt coal.

Bravo! Bravo! Carry on
Until you are being oiled much.
You are mine and mine is yours.
This is extra marital course, isn’t this?

Let’s die as you are hated
As you yourself spoiled your dignity.
