My China Broke

Satish Verma

There was an endless war 
between you and me O god 
from time immemorial, in the 
desert zone. 

The scorching harsh light 
of sun has spread the veins 
of earth with burning oil wells. 

Green pods will not open the round eyes. 

Now the sky was crying. 
Songbirds are gone.The thick-skulled 
were trying to find the scapegoats. 

The king lies.Wants 
to kill the night's moons.How much 
big mouth was your's? I wanted 
to serve my land.There were 
no more waters, which 
carried the flight of blue dreams. 

Just because, I wanted to tell you 
it was not easy to live any more.
