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.

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, ...............................
