In Wilderness we groan… Can you “you

Crane” lives better?

Prabuddha Ganguli

Oh! the sky is dark, noisy with strikes

from a drone

On the ground the bombarded rubble speaks a

their own language.

How long will we stand the test of time?

The greed of man has no limits for reason or rhyme.

From houses to the homeless, jobs to the unemployed

In the deep dungeons, how many more days and nights can we guess?

Life in such a broken state

We innocent people are in a political failure.

This is the latest news for the whole world

Who is to blame for “these duties” they perform?

Struggling for food, water and a piece of bread

Oh my God! countless nights that we still have to dread.

For now in the desert we moan

A life of uncertainty with skin to bone

We’re all on a downward slope

Until death as relief wreaks silent havoc.

Will we ever see a life that once was?

In innocence, laughter and the joy of being free.

Now already so weak and frail

Hoping against all hope on still waters

we will sail again.

Justice is just a word in the vocabulary lists

Does this mean anything to people who

uncontrolled beasts?

mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters,

grandparents, children, parents including our pets

Terrified of zoom bombing jets.

A lost generation for an unknown cause

We call on these politicians to take a break

Will they scratch their hearts to find a


Shouldn’t they be judged for their indiscipline


United Nations forever divided in the cause

Is there a meaning to international conventions and laws?

Only fruitless debates for years

While the misery persists, with no one to wipe away the pain and the tears.

So in the desert we’ll keep moaning

All we can wait for is the anguish of moaning

World order in the name of progress

Just adds to all the stress and clutter.
