A TO Z (human toys


About a bitter truth do speak I
By God gracious tell not lie

Clamors of my shrilly call
Does not rise but they fall?

Enhance the troubled hours
Fortify the vanity towers

Game or fun or sport flat
Hanging like useless bait
Incurring the wrath of fate

Jumping like a baby toy
Knocking humanity with great joy

Leaning bowing with devil’s device
Mounting higher on the crest of vice

Norms of this fleshy life
Offers me but only strife
Pierce through like sharp knife

Qualms of thing like conscience
Rest on the inventions of fatal science

Sit on my nerves and suffocate
Tightly fastened us with the debate

Untoward always this happens
Vanity phobia are made weapons

With remote are controlled all
Xenophobia is to mix the gall
Yawning gap and rising toll

Zealot’s killers and fanatics
All are my real mechanics

    Unfortunately some treat many as if they are toys to be dismantled and mangled. Yet if we care about our toys we admire them, keep them safe and have them through the years. So quite the irony, as we are not toys and even if we were most care for their toys through the years.
    A deep, dark poem that should be read at one of those several summits. (Report) Reply

    Not just an experimental poem, its very meaningful, thought evoking reality and much needed in this time of strife and conflict. Well done, Akram.......10/10.
    There is no need of the foot note. What you have explained in the footnote is apparent.

    Best Wishes
