A Fallacious Folly - Poem by Anjanay Pandey

Stupid, ridiculous emotion,
Worthy of eternal perdition,
Gains steadfast access to women and men
Who knows with whom and when?

‘Tis the same that caused asunder,
Falls of many with a resounding thunder,
Many fell and fell fast in love,
Deprived of sense sent from above

They prostrated endlessly in front of deity,
To bind them with true love in a manner of serendipity,
Bankrupt they become in wits,
Lord save them from these fits

The folly is worse than temptation and lust,
For under false pretense it come must,
Shatters the old logic and mind,
Peace and relief are hard to find,

It caused the fall of mighty and mightier,
Unbeknownst even to a seer,
For it creeps stealthily into heart,
Its intentions are full of art

However it has darkest secret of all
‘Tis distributed unequally amongst all
Some unfortunates get burned with fire
Some escape this inescapable mire.
