A Few Good Men

by Zeeshan Areef
(Mumbai, India)

Going a long way back in history,
Were the days where men were bizarre.
Their daily lives were without a story,
With beliefs only in suns and stars.
A world in war with scarcity in peace,
The kings made laws for the people.
The slightest rebellion ended the treatise,
And the kings showed mercy very little.
From Czars, Mussolini, Hitler and Stalin,
A negative vibe emerged.
They were men of valour for their personal battalion,
When their economy submerged.
They shouted War in agony,
when the people were grooving to the symphony.
A battle was the revival for an economy,
Which decided their nations destiny.
From brick to brick from street to street,
The allied marched their tanks.
The Axis was fallen in full defeat,
And sanctioned by the world bank.
Nobody ever learned anything from history,
And continued their cold war.
But Kennedy and Khrushchev signed the victory,
Of averting a nuclear war.
I realized when i witnessed,
The world's unstable fitness.
Where an intellectual mind resisted,
A Few Good Men still existed.
