Poem by Hiren Shah
LEGACY OF SEPTEMBER 11
The world on the whole continues to bemoan September Eleven;
As if before that, the earth was some heaven.
The events of September eleven were a blot on mankind’evolution;
It indicated that mankind has not progressed beyond the cavern.
The information revolution and mass communication
should have enabled a religious break-even.
It could have heralded a religious and political revolution.
Art and sports bind people together, we need many a Beethoven;
One has to be as spiritually agile to ensure
that the world everywhere is truly cosmopolitan
What we need is a spiritual James bond;a spiritual 007
To investigate into, contrary to what it preaches,
the religious intent behind September eleven.
Whether an Asian, European, African or American,
Whether Manhatten or any other nation, new ways are needed to enlighten
If there is one legacy that will always be attributed
to the events of September eleven
Applied spirituality needs to be as successful as applied science
i. e the world badly needs to straighten.
Humanity must be the sole religion to avoid another September 11.
