Alas, name alone cannot save Firdaws from Jahannam.

Does anyone remember those
silly squabbles
with siblings, fighting over the channels to watch?
One clicking the remote,
and one at the power switch of the TV,
the relentless exchange going on
for what seemed like forever
until mother
or father intervened.
Who steps in when the siblings are the parents
and their child the spectator,
with no power, only contempt
and anguish?
