Twirl of civilization

By Tareq Samin


One hundred years ago,

To promote the message of socialist equality

That young man was killed in police firing;

Hundred years later after his rebirth

for people’s right  of religion and freedom of expression

He was hanged till death by the communist.


Thousand years ago the spiritual man

who lighten the dark society

by the teachings of great religions

On that day, his beheaded head, scarred body

was found for talking against religious extremist.


The young man who ignored the bitter cold of the Himalayas

spends twenty years in meditation,

His dead body was found yesterday

Due to modernization of beliefs.


The young women who spent a decade in prison

 for democracy

was shot dead for free thinking

at her last life.


Because of inhuman

Socialism becomes dictatorial system,

Looting became a democratic system

Dishonesty  becomes religion,

Freedom of speech is used to spread hatred

Everything because of power greedy people.


Those who gave their lives for the noble ideology

they are all great man, dignified.

Monopolizing their thoughts, selling their name

greedy politicians take advantage from it.


Thus, the good from the evil,

evil from the good

turn around in the world continued

Civilized became savage due to prejudice and ignorance.


        [ Translated from Bengali by Tareq Samin.]
