Poetry 2018 Longlist, Khurram Nizami

AT WHAT COST!

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.
