Sagacious words

Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. ~ Khalil Gibran

The Fluid World

 Some scholarly thinker* said:
'Communism is the enemy of faith,
while Capitalism is the enemy of Humanity.
Materialism is the belief of both of them.'
And, 'Life in Communism is production
and that of Capitalism is Taxation.'

*Muhammad Iqbal

Swimming through the whirlpools of humanity
And through the tides of faith 
And surfing on the waves of materialistic beliefs, 
One wonders, about the solidness of jetsam and flotsam-
On the shores of necessity, what of the production and taxation?
Are they the inevitable currents of labour, 
That etch the human spirit with soothing manifestations?
Or unnecessary cesspit's of profit-only productions,
Which create tsunami losses in terms of social investments?
