Billions of People (on Eid)


Billions of people around the world
have waited for the new moon,
both rich and poor alike,
some to beg while some to expend.

A month of extravagance and
a month of restrain too!

A month of peace and love
when thousands of Muslim would die
around the world,
in the name of Allah, the Merciful!

Billions of people around the world
are in the exodus
taken once in every year
from hell to their homes
leaving behind empty cities
that used to thrive with them.

As the mass of those trampling feet
is gone for a few days
the cityscape breathes a sigh
of relief from the weight.

The billions still alive would wait
for another new moon
to end the holy month
with a day full of festivals
for the rich to indulge
in yet some more of decadence
where the poor, still restrained,
would resort to begging again!
