Zardari


Asif Ali Zardari

The curse that follows,

From one portion to another,

They say “he is a politician”

As the light and soul removes itself

From the burden of pain and despair

 

As land becomes rotten dry,

Through plunder and corruption

The symbols of reconciliation

The fabricated will and nepotism

Walks in the corridors of power,

The frankensteins of democracy

 

As the nation goes to the gallows

The price we paid, the hands of devil

Inaudible screams and muffled rage,

Plays he from the distance, the old tunes

Of martyrdom and democracy

 

As the time folds itself,

In shame

Upon its knees,

The nation and its resource

Like the African famine this curse flows

The followers plenty, as slavery is in vogue

The Pharaoh’s hostages upon their knees

 

As the Nero plays his harp,

The chosen few,

To bring to keep the king

As the old goat and its image

Remain in view

The worships begins

Of the Kings and Queens

The monsters upon our land,

As they roam free

From justice and responsibility

 

The politics of conflict and interest

In play,

The masters of deceit and murder

The wheels will stop,

The soul will halt

No longer the slogans

“Long live the monster”

The fleeting moment,

But not eternity

As the curse finally finds its cage

The earth will not accept,

Heavens will not forgive

As the moment arrives of truth and Justice

As the ink flows

Through the hands of history

Remove those names

From our conscience and land

 

The traitors have no place,

As the time flies in its heat

Only the distant dust of their crimes

The witness to their existence and reminder

As the extinction begins,

The morning blooms

The colour of spring upon nation’s soul

The Real Revolution
