Left & Right Poem by Sathya Narayana

Left & Right

Rating: 4.8

Oh, heckling thinkers,
and O' inverted intellectuals...
be thou left or right,
sling not mud at each other
and waste not thy chaste anger!
Eager, both thou are
to offer this world due comfort!
Two sides of uncut
one whole thou are;
our bolsters...
why fight amongst thou
O' mistreading stalwarts!
Stretch thy great peers
there, on that deserving rout of wolves
rambling out there,
eating the vitals of the world to core
and breeding hatred and squalor all over!
No signets they bear of nation any;
just bandicoots are they in our closets!
Come ye, cut their throats!
Yes, yes, no remorse...
ere they get to the roots and bore! ! !

Very necessary treatise.Well done! (For your cosideration) , When I was in the military, we wore undershirts depicting an American cartoon figure, Pogo Possum uttering the famous'We Have Met The Enemy and He Is Us'.

I am truly touched by your word imagery in this piece - Sweet talking foxes/ words showering flowers. In my humble opinion, a powerful message, superbly presented

Humankind is behaving and performing completely different than the desire of God. Humankind is using their freedom and sovereign power in favour of devil or satan. Thanks Sathya for sharing this piece with us.

I have become my own enemy. I do not care for any enemities. ' mein khod i jab khod ki dushmon banie huye dushmono ka dushmoni se mera keye kam' Thanks dear Sathya for this piece.

God has gone away in disgust at the atrocities man commits against man. man is the only animal that kills for vicarious pleasure ruthlessly. i wish your voice reaches God, and he sends someone again to destroy evil. brilliant work.10

I could'nt agree with you more, this is a crazy world of greed gone mad, not enough lets have a war. It is so easy so impersonal with misiles and bombs. Sathya well written, keep it up we have too. B ob
