JH Sayyar's Sonnets

464
I met the camel master in the mart and he said
‘I bought a tamed camel on this Eid to sacrifice
Loading the camel on the truck feeling dread
Of separation from the owner on nail killing lice
When the truck starts moving to the destination
The camel maddened on not finding the owner
And with the truck the camel showed his negation
Striking his head against the iron bar like stoner
The camel died could not bear the owner’s unlink
Alas! we all men have no love one another at all
Living on earth leading love less we must think

Birds and beats well than men in loving the owner
Men cheat men on earth, Satan the biggest planner
