Business Of Life - Poem by Savita Tyagi

Three thousand taped hours of Nixon era released
Researches will be pouring over them
To judge the history and market their perspective
Some one lives to creates a history in a moment
Others live to know the history of that moment

Money makers will put in attractive package
Even the lies and deceptions of history
Gullible consumers will be duped into buying
Books, CDs,
Entertaining themselves
With films, documentaries,
T.V. talk Shows
Supported by advertisers
Again coaxing us into buying
Their products

A class of politicians and businessmen
Thrive on our stupidity
Upon our desire to know rich and famous
Upon our hidden longing to be somebody
That we are not or couldn't be.

    Great Savita Ji! Even the historians believe that 50% of the History are lies. Those who remain engaged in money making, when leave their seats, write books to play once again from the simplicity of innocent men and to earn more money.

    In a world where everything is turned into a means of making money, gullible common masses are ever duped through advertisement stunts of products and sensational stories of the lives of celebrities! Thus the politicians and business men thrive on the naivete of the common people! A vicious circle effectively presented! (Report) Reply
