The Animal State (Imagery, Allegory And Satire) Poem by Muzahidul Reza

The Animal State (Imagery, Allegory And Satire)

Rating: 4.4


No earthquake, no thunder, no volcanic eruption
Or even there was not any of other natural calamities,
A sudden loud sound broke out all through the bush
With whizzing, shuddering, cracking, tearing, echoing,
Fear, horror, dark, terror, misery and ill spirits spread
Committing destruction, death in a horrible situation,
Dust, dirt, smoke coiled over the whole atmosphere
The harmless animals are quite perplexed, helpless
They began crying, shouting, running, rushing, fainting
Seeing reddish spots and innumerable torn bodies.

They blamed one another for committing the crime,
Brawling, harming, plotting hardened in them,
A long conflict complicated and awful tangled
Loosing the worms of crime, injustice and corruption;
The virtues sunk and the vices rose everywhere
Envious state of barbarism, terrorism inflicted on them;
The poor animals lost peace and principles they had
Centuries curses engulfed all what was out of thought.

Ferocious animals are in the neighboring big forest
Who always wait for chances on the helpless ones;
They do not care for hesitating in violating terms
Committing all sorts of hyenas and monstrous harms;
They know how and when to cook poisonous broth
And how to throw an unseen net to catch the rest.

Once some cats were quarrelling nearby the bush
Some wild dogs of the big forest made an instant rush,
For repeated barking mewing was beyond of hearing
Foxes and monkeys also joined within a quick haste
Crows, kites and vultures started crowing for the feast
What more, rats and mice left the bush being frightened
Dreadful tumult, commotion, collision, conflict took place
At the arrival of buffalos, deer, bears, wolfs and hyenas;

But with sudden and unexpected appearance of
Jaguars, lions, tigers and some bears' rejoining to them
Returning from the herd of small and weak beasts
Consisting boars, wolfs, hyenas, wild pigs and dogs,
Though wolfs and hyenas started loudly barking
But came to no use and got chased, retreated soon,
All the surroundings became instant silent and isolated,
All went away murmuring without more looking back.

The victorious were excited having got all easy victory,
But they found troubles to enjoy the whole empire lonely,
So there were roaring, shouting, blustering, threatening
Of occupying empire, power, lordship and over lordship,
Finally, all the bestial rules with ‘Might is right' were
Established in rules and regulations less animal state.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
The Animal State is allegorical and satirical (allegory and satire are shown through imageries) poem. It is behavioral and political allegory and satire where the animals and episodes are symbolically personalized / taken to clear the real facts happening around the human world; ……………….

So, here all the animals symbolize human beings and human beings in activities: No earthquake, no thunder, no volcanic eruption or even there was no any of natural calamities, a sudden loud sound (explosions) broke out all through the bush /certain areas with devastating exploding sounds. Whizzing, shuddering, cracking, tearing, echoing, fear, horror, dark, terror, misery and ill spirits spread, committing destruction, death in a horrible situation. dust, dirt, smoke coiled over the whole area................... these symbolize wars, exploding, massacre, violence, crimes, corruptions, horror, terror, and all forms of evil activities in the earth by humans.
They blame one another for committing the crime, brawling, harming, plotting hardened in them. A long conflict complicates and awful tangles, loosing the worms of crime, injustice and corruptions. The virtues sink and the vices rise everywhere, envious state of barbarism, terrorism inflict on them. They lose peace and principles they had. Centuries curses engulfed all what were out of thought. The victorious were excited having got all easy victory but they found troubles to enjoy the whole empire lonely. So there were roaring, shouting, blustering, threatening of occupying the empire, power, lordship and over lordship, finally ‘Might is right' / full of chaos / rules less / self / personalempires and states are being established (killing democracy) in the present world, yet they claim themselves happy, not bothered about being immoral, bestial,...............................
