Our Lost Pal
Poem By Dr. Nikhat Bano
I just saw a word 'Humanity'
written somewhere here,
O Yes! On a page of our mortal book;
Somewhere right here!
And then it vanished from the sight,
don't know where?
Might have disappeared
somewhere into the thin air.
Still recall that good book of ours,
O God! Still recall those letters of that
heaviest, mightiest word;
How on earth I lost that word!
It was a byword for peace,
a second word for a lifeline called
It also meant compassion.
O World! Will you help me
to find that lost vital piece of man?
It was a jewel once worn by the wise.
Must've met a fatal end, I guess.
Alas! Must've been eliminated
and buried in cold blood,
on the orders of the worldling.
Our poor pal was last seen with the virtue.
