(Dedicated to sustainable peace and harmony – Deepak Sarkar, www.kolki.com)
Snakes shed skins per annual ritual
Deciduous shed leaves in the fall
Politicians shed insults during campaign or losing election (concession)
Many try hard to shed ego for freedom!
Eucalyptus, Arbutus, sheds bark for renewal
Corporations shed technologies for state of the art
Institutions shed books and manuals for the new arrivals
Organizations shed heads, its time for layoff or retire!
Military sheds old weapons dismantling detonators
Sometimes creating enemies at home or beyond border
Enriching Defense Industries from new military orders!
Religions try to shed dogmas to accommodate all
Some shed love to dominate with deadly cross
As victims shed tears in silence or standing tall!
Heaven sheds meteorites on planets and stars
To remind homosepiens about the gospels of loving care –
That “Blessed are the peace makers”!
