POETRY

What is your alphabet?

The alphabets of life are
Not for the children of this world

The letters of organization
Left behind in the junkyard of honour

The words of democracy
Not in the dictionary of the autocrats

The sentence of love
Not for the delirious

As death comes knocking
Of every man his deeds

It comes calling
Asking one question

‘What is your alphabet?’
