Poem: The Lunatic Singing of a Lullaby

By: Pijush Kanti Deb

As
unabated have been my falling
From the sky
Down and down
To the land of hell
So
unstopped have been your flying
from our land
up and up
to the sky of heaven.
Though
civilization multiplies,
epics are written on humanity,
the utility of equality is recognized
and peace-prize is declared
yet
nothing comes
to stop the shedding of crocodile’s tears
and
to fill in the gap
between you and me
except
the lunatic singing of a lullaby
to lull me to sleep
half-naked and half-stomached.
