An Outcry Upon Determined Human Supplications
Author: Aamir Aziz
What are these sounds in these wild dunes?
Where man moans along several shadows of his
On being fettered by invincible strings of fate.
His surrender is a quasi self abuse here
His improvisations; childish self deceit.
Here only sad lullabies greet, amuse
And stay prone at the peaceful threshold of calm.
Better thousand folds those celibate pleasures
Than marriage to a whore of varied smiles and faces
Whose qualified avowals of love mock our trust.
But this yoke of flesh and soul is destined
To dart together despite native hostilities
Till men shall be eccentric critics
Of notorious pyramid of being, nemesis and revival
And pronounce themselves as no man or every man
To inspire awesome laughters
At the denouement of their tragedy.
Men's masculine gaieties, women’s feminine charms
Both wither in hoary infest of depletion and decay.
Scorn is for tradition of this sarcastic fable
The personae of which pour mud on themselves and laugh
And often invite clansic brawls to pretend ignorance
From the estranged aura of their world
Which offers nothing for the fruition of human fantasies.
True, vulnerable were we being human, but
Suicidal silence will rule on these stoic lips
Until guillotine of fate swerves uninformed
To furnish an honourable exit
From this enduring farce of the best Playwrit.
