Whither World?

Naushad Ahmed

Willful, wrathful warlords with weighty war-chests
willingly, wantonly waged war
with withering words, with weapons.
Warily we watched,
withstanding what warmongers wreaked.
Wordlessly we wept,
whoever won.

Warped, wayward, worthless warlocks without wisdom
wickedly waved witching wands
which won wondrous wealth wrongfully,
while weary, worried, woebegone workmen,
wrestling with weakening, worsening want,
woefully wailed:
When? When will we win?
