Ode To Cctv Camera....... - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

Hanging on the top
All alone
To keep an eye
On looker-on
Be it sunshine or rain
Goes through inbuilt pain
They keep me on
Day and night, long
Without any furl on
Capturing the acts of inhumane
Why make me insane?
My watcher sits in AC room
Enjoying all seeing all frames
Tell me who understands my pain
And for how long
People are going to mistrust
Each other's activities…

    An all seeing eye that judges our behavior. Very thoughtfully presented (Report) Reply

    The idea of CCTV Camera telling us about its woeful travails is something very unique. The narrative unfolds various aspects of human nature in an interesting manner. Impressive poem. Thank you, Md. Asim ji. I quote: They keep me on / Day and night / Tell me who / understands my pain /...People are going to mistrust / Each other's activities… (Report) Reply
