Paradoxical Alikes Poem by Sathya Narayana

Paradoxical Alikes

Rating: 4.6

Blazing red
Ascetic saffron
Appeal to me
In same tone

Radical cannons
Vedic canons
Sound to me
In same tune

Rishi Marx
Rebel Manu
Seem to me
Right addresses

Take my route
Learn the truth

(Manu was a great exponent of Vedas. He wrote Manu Smrithi
a codified Hindu law based on Vedic tenets)

good flow smooth poetry--- but red and saffron no longer appeal me as in their name lots of attrocieties happen in India.--So right now for me its BEWARE red ---saffron---beware. regards anju

I like the format of this poem. Unfortunately I am not familiar with most of the content; consequently, it does not mean much to me. I think it would be an effective poem for those who are. However, it does tell me something about you the poet-person.

Still some more lines needed to make impact on readers.Personally i don't like Manu and i wrote in telugu stree vada kavita 'manuvu kalam nundi tanuvu daasyam lone'.Good attempt.Sir you have not passed comments on my poem; Politicians-satire'
