Beast of Beauty

Oh! Piety! You seek home with the less prettier, why?

Why do the pretty get readily stuck in the bog of ugliness?

Is it that God made beauty to be ravished, to be sinful? ?

I don't know but my observation clearly shows

Beauty is greatly prone to promiscuity and sinfulness

Satan seems to grab the pretty ones from the hand of God

and craves to take them in his fold

I am not sure but by dint of daily experience you'll find

mainly pretty women as whores
relentlessly indulged in dirty sex

mostly with ugly sensuous crooked men

in slums, palaces, mansions and red lite areas

in streets, clubs, bordellos and dens

wasting the light of their heavenly gift, the beauty

character, piety and life

in excessive lust for sex

sadly in the name of love
and money! !

    Pretty harsh and to me removed from the truth
    Rhetorical and rather injudicious ….. to many many people...
    It is less a poem and more an covert denunciation of imagined shadows lurking in the vicinity.

    Reminds one of the inquisition and darker times in human history....
    That the context...! ! !

    From a purely poetic perspective a mediocre attempt, with scant attention to poetic parameters.

    be happy and
    Allah have mercy on us and our dark imaginings steeped in self righteous bluster

    peace (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
