Poetry 2018 Longlist, Khurram Nizami


Let’s flock
Let’s invent
Some issues
Trivial issues.
Then add some flavour to it
Then add some flavour to it
Lots of anger, a crowd
And add heads, sans brain
Then bring a platter.

Then close your eyes
Numb the brain
Then be selective
Choose a chapter from a history book.

Then add some fuel
Because ignorance is a bliss.
Take real issue to burial ground
And extract a battle ground.

But doing so, please be cautious
Power is sometimes riotous
It can take you to a new height
But at what cost? It’s you to decide.
