Elevate Human Life

Say it once
I ignore
Say it twice
I pay attention
Say it thrice
I tend to believe...
The universal law
Of the ad-world
It works well
On the common man
The law propagates
And spreads around
The entire globe.

Art of repetition
Is made to
Make believe
The ordinary
As extra-ordinary
The absurd
As exquisite
An utter lie
As truth itself
World of the innocent
Seems to shrink
At every repeated

Politicians've used it
To manipulate public
Dictators used it
To increase their power
Hidden terrorists use it
To create suicidal humans
Some bogus enterprises use it
To sell worthless products
Self proclaimed gurus use it
To increase their followers
Many use the technique
To detrimental effects.

Repetitive procedure
Like auto-suggestion
Can be used effectively
To cure human disorders.

There are many ways
Available for man to use
Hope they're all employed
To elevate human life.

    Thoughtful poem. Very true said, one started believing after hearing in repeated words. Beautiful flow of words...
    Say it once
    I ignore
    Say it twice
    I pay attention
    Say it thrice
    I tend to believe...
    The universal law..
    IN some case it is good while in some cases it is harmful too. Loved reading it. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
