“I want to guard flowers against animals
I admire beauty and promote love
I want a wholesome peace with no crack
That's why I'm continuously under attack!”

RAPIDFIRE POEMS OF AN INCARCERATED POET FROM PAKISTAN

Generals and Politicians

By Habib Sulemani 














For how long will you keep fretting?
And claiming that

only generals are
wise and honest
in this country.

"Politicians are dogs,
throw bones in their
direction, and they
will keep quiet!"

For how long will you keep lying?
And arguing that

the sun is nothing
but a dark planet,
and the moon is
source of light!

"Politicians are corrupt
and generals are clean,
cos the Army Chief
is a clean-shaven man!"
