शहीद

सुना था शहीदों की चिताओं पर लगेंगे मेले
पर आज तो यह दफन पड़े हैं अकेले
इनके नाम पर राजनीति के गए खेल खेले
न जाने क्यों इन्होने दुख थे झेले
सरफरोशी की तमन्ना भी थी इनके दिल में
जोर भी था बाजुंए कातिल में
पर बेकार गयी इनकी कुर्बानी
आज पब और डिस्को में मस्त है जवानी
लहू की जगह नसों में दारू की हो रही रवानी
देश पर राज कर रहे अंबानी, अडानी
वो उतना बड़ा आदमी, जितनी बड़ी करे बेईमानी
नकली डिग्री लेकर भी मंत्री बनी ईरानी
नेताओं को नहीं कोई काम
सिर्फ लगाएं एक दूसरे पर इलजाम
मंहगाई से जनता की नींद हराम
किसी को नहीं याद इन शहीदों का पैगाम
हिंद के ताजों तुम्हें मेरा अश्रु भरा सलाम ।
