NEW YEAR EVE~by Saroj K Padhi

Promise me dear, before this dewy December
passes into Joyous January, for the New Year
that you will return all the lost smiles and cheer
to the alienated youth who took to arms as cure
when abject poverty chews them like a mythical
monster, in a jungle with progress out of gear;
promise me not to take life of the toiling farmers
who have been fighting so hard over the years
with natural and man-made calamities for crops
that hardly fulfil their dream, but invite new fears ;
promise that you’ll fill each stomach with such love
that none will dig unripe flesh as pleasure trove;
promise me not to take life of the virtuous, right doer
as complexities mount in life with many vices as lure;
promise me not to break heart of love’s true seeker
as price of every thing is up but man grows cheaper.
