Poem: The Lunatic Singing of a Lullaby

By: Pijush Kanti Deb



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