Sonnet: 1 - Rare Breed - Poem by Amitava Sur

Sonnet: (1) Rare Breed.
=========================
In the modern world of today
The people whom we see,
Many a beast are hidden in them
Very few are human being.
So long you have your hunger within–
You are so benign and cool,
The moment your hunger is filled
You snarl like the wolf.

In the bare eyes if you stare at them
You see many a “JEKYLL” - being so gentle.
But right at your point of need
They'll jump upon as“HYDE“senile, with long tooth and nail.

True human on this earth - if judged as on date
Is reduced to a rare breed –what a irony fate!
======================

    Wonderfully stark truths are spoken within this poem, Amitava. There is no way to tell by
    looking at someone who they are or if they can be trusted. People hide behind fake smiles
    and pretend faces, turning on you when you least expect it. (Report) Reply

    So true, we learn to hide so much, it is so hard to find people we trust as we all play in the game of life and truth is hidden.

    Very good write with no holds barred. Tells it like it is and
    to the point. There is a rare breed of human that is so true.
    Humans are full of disguises and wear masks. It is hard
    to tell who is who. You only know when it hits you by surprise.
    Good write. (Report) Reply
