Billion Marches, Billion Pledge

Dr. R. P. Singh


Shall it bridge the tear and torn,
shall it give the emotions bade!
The war is on, it shall see the ebb.
Ambitions roaming super scream
finding tantrums amidst the sunken dream.
They will stop the tanks
and a thaw shall artillery find.
Warlords meeting at a mission to thaw,
shaking hands with  uncharted limbs,
it goes and sinks the ways sanguine,
and the blot is coded and seen.
Shall it give emotions back
That the orphans have to speak,
The widowed hearts and the disserted selves
savage ruins and talks unheard.
Shall the ceasefire script
a new pledge  for  the war shy
A new squirm shall the lords find
And the new comrades, the new escapade,
Billion marches, billion pledge …
