Hi, The Responsible Citizen

Cry not
Just laugh

Laugh with the clowns

Clowns demand
Your obedience!

    The noteworthy comment from Nobel laureate Jew Albert Einstein during the racist as usual German regime-Die Welt wird nicht bedroht von den Menschen, die böse sind, sondern von denen, die das Böse zulassen-of english is The world is being problematised from men not, who are bad, rather from those who supports/accepts or understands with the bad.In German Böse is literal meaning of bad.O with double dots overhead or umlaut is written as oe joined together.To handle Böse India must accept the fact on their land with so much bad people around two Böse men were also born-Subhash Bose and Shivaji Bhonsle-both SB initials.People must learn even if they have to die for order, they have to kill the bad understandings with bad people so that posterity learns the fact life is not worth living as savages.

    Not the clowns are a problem but the problem lies in maintaining an understanding of an exchange with the clown.For normal not so educated people it is entertainment or something another to experience.For the educated it gets back to the incineration of society and order which in India happened since last 2012 years towards worst but still people are dying to survive somewhat like unmasked clowns at the hands of indiscriminate crime in the form of paper sufficing order for nation or society demanding a civil obedience in the scale of finance whoever has to support it for the long run in some years for the occupation rivalry or a dominion where a certain section of people gets the breakthrough.It has many sides mostly leading to nothing but laughing like clowns when victimised people have understood the fact -Tears dry on their own.I can only add a corollary for laughs to disappear another way.Transition (Report) Reply

    Poem: Hello, The Responsible Citizen (Deleted the poem by the site by the excuse of using all caps.)

    Comment: You know something, Pran...I look at tis sumo-succinct piece, and I say to so much can be pulled from what may appear to a green, novice writer as merely10 simplex words. I have digested several possible interpretations as to your message...none of which are simplex, becayse in reading your poetry, I see someone whose pen runs deep in socratic, impassioned waters....However, the one scenario here that stands out quite dartingly is your possible message that Life is a circus...Clowns own a circus, as aside from the Ringmaster, they are the ones that control the tone, tempo, cadence of the show...People react instinctively with excitement ^ verve to the they 4 years old or 104...Thus, in essence, the clown commands...and we who are in the clowns stead...respond the way they are commanding us to via their strange, comedic way...And, think about it, now, Pran...I s Life not both strange & funny? ! ! ! ! Excellent penning., maistro! ~F j R~ (Report) Reply
