جنہوں نے بستی اجاڑ ڈالی، کبھی تو ان کا حساب ہو گا
وہ دن گئے جب کہ ہر ستم کو ادائے محبوب کہہ کے چپ تھے
اٹھی جو اب ہم پہ اینٹ کوئی تو اس کا پتھر جواب ہو گا
سحر کی خوشیاں منانے والو، سحر کے تیور بتا رہے ہیں
ابھی تو اتنی گھٹن بڑھے گی کہ سانس لینا عذاب ہو گا
سکوتِ صحرا میں بسنے والو، ذرا رُتوں کا مزاج سمجھو
جو آج کا دن سکوں سے گزرا تو کل کا موسم خراب ہو گا
نہیں کہ یہ صرف شاعری ہے، غزل میں تاریخِ بے حسی ہے
