These Smiles


These Smiles!

Why these smiles smile?
To have faceless face,
In canvas's profile,
With big men's share,
Wrist- men's blare,
And vomiting scholars,
In passing beguiles.

Do these smiles ever bloom,
In silent corner, shady gloom?
Oh! No, They go and go,
Catch, hatch and face,
Weigh and exploit,
Promote and underrate,
The faith of the proletariat!

Do the smiles aspire grace,
From the will of big- brother's vase,
Or to be loyal snobs to comply,
The secret-deed to imply,
The will of innocent democracy!

Hi here comes the president,
There the honest chief minister,
Great they are killing monsters,
Heart of darkness they foster,
They need your vacant smile,

Why these smiles smile?
Why these smiles smile?
Why these smile smile?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
