Fascination!


I am fascinated with these sheep,
Those wear the uniforms of pants and caps,
Doing the repetitive work from dawn to dawn,
In the manufacturing facilities and offices,
Well fed with non nutritious canned and fast food,
Gulping the multi vitamins and minerals as supplements,
Eyes not wide open to see the world and fellow workers,
Face is kept stern, as if stand in front of the dictator,
Walk in group, but not communicable to share the wits,
Their furs are sheered as the taxes to be naked,
To go merry around, all around the year,
Doing the same repetitive task at work and home,
I am really fascinated with these sheep,
Have we travelled this long distance,
Since the Lord made a man out of sand,
To make ourselves to be the sheep, well obeyed,
Ready to be slaughtered for the welfare,
The economy of riches and potato chips for the poor.

    It is what it is Veeraiyah. Reduced to the level of ants the entire globe now resembles an anthill.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
