There is a pounding in my head

There is a pounding in my head

I wonder if I were better of dead

I can’t look at future with anything but dread

I don’t really want to get up from this bed.

They’ll be celebrating the day when the country was freed

Though the country doesn’t have enough to feed

The teeming millions who can’t do anything but breed

Maybe that is my creed.

Gone are the wishes and deed

Let me rest and not heed

I can’t get up and lead

This revolution has no seed

I put my hand under the pillow and checked

Something hard and poking like a lead

I wonder if I hit it last night while I napped

There is a pounding in my head.

  1. Nice poem, a lot of rhyming words with a theme built around them ? glad to read it and on the eve of Independence day it makes pretty good sense
