Just Ice

a poem by

Chakrabarty S K

Lost in the crowd of indifference,
The pale man cried’,
‘I want justice’!

‘Crying here is no solution’;
Somebody said,
‘Because everything here, is
already paid’.

‘Just do a just work,
That’s your last work;
Get caught, Go inside
and, explain’!!

They said, ‘Don’t shout!
You will get just ice,
but no cream.
Get cooled and
freeze for life’.

Tons of air blew
through my society.
There were more crime
than justice.
Justice has no relative,
but justice is relative.
When I do, you are wrong,
When you do I am wrong.

He left the scene bewildered,
murmured, ‘Yes, I do not want
justice,
but just ice with little
cream.
That’s the end of my brittle
dream’.

The Poem

a poem by

Chakrabarty S K

To the endless open sky,
I looked innocently.
In the layers of air,
Many thoughts and happiness,
Joys and sorrows floating and sailing on-
Many of those whisper,
In the close person of my ears;
I can hear your ‘Sighs’.
Multitudes of waves pushes it,
Throws it away-
Your ‘Sighs’ roll on, float on,
Swept through the streams of air,
Gets lost, behind the temple, beyond
The trees – to the eternity.
