"Let there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong; they are the ones to attain felicity".

The  White Elephants
By:  Dr. Maqsood Jafri

We live in the waterless deserts facing the scorching heat.
No shade, no tree, no canopy, no breeze but suffocating
heat burns  us from top to toe and  we feel strangulated.
Life is hell but we are told to go to hell even after death.
The poor souls burn in the flames of their own fate.
On the alta of injustice we are sacrificed like lambs.
The spiritual swindlers act like cheating demagogues.
In the name of God these imposters dodge their votaries.
The feudal lords perpetrate unprecedented inflictions
on the mum and dumb tenants. Ravish the chastity
of the innocent buds of beauty. Molesting the petals.
The clerics suck our blood like leeches and bugs.
They talk much of graves and the world hereafter.
Nothing is in their coffers to present to the beggars
of faith who drift on dreaded paths like dry leaves.
The kings and the military fascists are vampires
who lurk over the heads of headless skeletons.
The capitalists claim to be the chosen people of
deity throwing the loaves of charity to the paupers.
These White Elephants have buried us alive
in the dykes and ditches of poverty and ignominy.
