2 lynching poems

A lynched leaf

A leaf,
caught in a spider’s web
flutters in muted pain

it turns..it turns
then slowly stops

A muslim
trapped in a fascist state
flails in frantic daze

he shakes….he shakes
then softly dies

his breath
an autumn branch

his life
a lynched leaf

Two
( for Muhammad Majloom and Azad Khan)

two tied-hands’
two stuffed mouths

two branches
two ropes

the seesaw of sorrow
the weighing scale of silence

two folded tongues
two curved necks

one old tree
two young voids

Have your say
