Neela Nath


India


There was late night party
Yesterday in the Mount View Club.
Dance, drinks, DJ and drums
Helped them seek bliss.
To intensify they mixed drug
With drinks and enjoyed life's
Full cup with fun and frolic.
Outside, another world woke up,
A world of real hunger and thirst.
There a old mad woman was waiting near
the dustbin for the leftover,
To keep alive her mad life.
When their party would finish,
She would start her lone party!

    madness of modernity, enjoyment on the stake of chastity, ruined attitude ans at last a lone meadow of poverty,

    A well narrated poem....
    with a few lines you have clearly drew the picture of luxury loving new generation, and the forgotten people who have nothing with them, no money, no pride, no self respect, but only hunger...and whom we want to hide behind the screen..

    I love the last line very much....it's so touching....

    a very impressive poem, it becomes very difficult for us to accept these new traditions ruining our great culture and morals. (Report) Reply
