The Cry Of An X'mas Owl

Poem By Nasarudheen.P. Parameswaran

As the cry of an owl, i cry

to awake people snoring,

to warn of imminent evils.

But, of obsessed identity

as bewitched devils sleep

they breath out alcohol.

The disobedient children

Leaving words of the Qur'an

and of the Bible crave wine

and a life with selfish harlots.

Empiricism cuts Spiritualism-

the thread that unify all-

and prevent the fall

ENDS as wild-cry my call.

Unfortunately drunkenness is widespread even among teenagers! Alcohol has become a status symbol for every function! How many families end up in wrecks because of addiction to liquor! All heart felt cries go unheeded! A great write!
Promotes this devil for revenue and became the symbol of status others are untouchables and outcast among civilised society
