Poets Are Dead Not The Poetry - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

Dead Poets
Tuesday,22nd April 2019

Each poet is silent
and remains quiet
with no protest
as poets themselves take risk of an acid test

Google provides Booster
for those writers who pay the money
and in turn, provide comments twenty thousand times or more
this is how our ranking list works here

sincere poets suffer
whereasduplicate poets climb high the ladder
from nowhere they come near
and get the fame here

I know many of them here
they take satisfaction and boost their images
if this is the level of the ranking list
you can imagine where does lie the interest

we all have to think seriously,
does it serve the interest of literature?
you influenced by daily request to read
and this naturally makes our interest dead

even with 30,40 or 50 poems
they manage the team
you can find their names in the ladder
this makes them happier
