Serial Killer - Poem by Sukanta Mohapatra

I just tolerated
When beautiful women
In designer sarees invaded
Our living room..
…Women who wore
Glittering ornaments
And talked nothing but
Brides and bridegrooms…

My logic hid
When witches chanted mantras
Kid ghosts ran helter-skelter
When a lady turned Into a snake
And I secretly wished
For a snake charmer….

I turned my ears deaf
When everybody
Discussed about Sasural of Simar
And hid my envy
When my wife eulogized
That dancing star Amar..

But this is too much
Actor killed last week’s episode
Came alive now, thanks to the director
Enough is enough
Hand me over the remote
I want to be a serial killer…
