Expired Humans Poem by M. Asim Nehal

Expired Humans

Rating: 5.0

I killed a man today
To eat my long awaited meal
And to offer the remains to friends
And my honored kill
turned out to be a curse
as I start to pierce the body
the blood was thick and black
the smell was worse than the rotten goose
and this man must have been a corrupt creature
and should have consumed
unwanted, illegal and from unethical source
and must have eaten
someone's will and share
his fingers were like mud
and head was stinking badly
I could not stand beside my kill
For more than few minutes
And decided to check the validity
Next time before the kill
They say they are alive yet live like expired.

That's one real write up... Feeling sick and ashamed to born in a society so corrupt and unethical. Applaud for such a bold poem.10

This is simply amazing. A very deep and significant message lies in this poem. That's what humanity has come to after all. The killers and the killed both are bad. Expired humans is an apt title. It reminds me of T.S. Eliot's vision of hollow men. Thanks for sharing.10 deservedly.
