We Are Marooned Here by PIPROM(m): 9:52am On Aug 20, 2009
We are trapped
In this cesspool
Of endless worries,
Fears,
Imprisoned in dungeon
Of lost nationhood,
We are marooned here.
Our children
Reject their citizenship,
Scaling over
Barbed border fences
In search of nationality.
Father and mother groan
In pains of old age,
In abandonment.
We watch from afar
As crisp currencies
Stolen from our vault
Fly all over,
Perching on foreheads
Of nubile damsels
In seductive dance steps
To lurid lyrics.
We hide under
Our matrimonial beds
For safety
And pray to heaven for protection
At approach of anopheles.

This is a great poem. We are indeed marooned here. In captive by a privileged few.
