Nowhere To Go, nowhere to hide

*************

Nowhere to go, nowhere to hide,

In this world full of sorrow,

Lost souls, humanity ceased.

Mist of corruption veiling,

The innocent and honest.

Pub filled with bacchanalians,

All having a mirthless laugh.

**************

Haggard look on the young faces,

Dubious of being in ambivalence.

Feelings dead as ashes in the hearth.

Dignity sold at the cost of monetary gain.

Hunger shrieking in lonely silence.

Diseased, withered and decaying,

Are the virtues and convictions.

*************

Promises are meant to be broken,

The only principle to be ruled.

Fiscal deficit going up and high,

A sweep of global recession,

Reason for youngsters’ suicide.

Global economy in a big crunch.

********

Where to go, where to hide?

Nowhere to go, nowhere to hide.
