Corruption - Poem by shraddha shraddha the poetess

corruption, corruption, corruption
it is now a profession
it is spreading like an infection
needs instant cure and medication
it works like a termite
eating everything day and night
it is a malicious cancer
deep rooted, posing a danger
we only talk and enquire
that also with no true desire
we hardly raise our voice
as if we have no choice
root cause are 'we'
not they he or she
let's pledge to fight
to erode this termite..!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

i just want to give a message...that we must fight against corruption.

    The subject of the poem is a burning issue that has been well described.
    we hardly raise our voice
    as if we have no choice
    root cause are 'we'
    not they he or she - Well said! We do not raise our voice against corruption because we choose to take the easy way out.

    A really nice poem :) Corruption, a serpent, that we nurture ourselves, of darkness and greed; does it devour their hearts... It is power and greed, which create this spark, which grows everyday like fungus... till it envelops everything. Isn't it us who created this corruption by introducing money? well, It shall be us who will end corruption then. (Report) Reply

    This indignation must turn into ballot riots not bullet rebellion. Very rhyming sweet writing.Poets are the mirrors held against the Society, So says socially committed writers from the Classical period to the modern times. (Report) Reply
