The House Of Relationships

Rating: 5.0
Oft the house of relationships is
Built on the land of selfishness,
It bricks are shrewdness
Plastered with cement of treacheries
Painted with color of pretensions,
The ceiling is foxy hypocrisy
And floor the opaque opportunism.

When the earthquake of
Difficulties strike that jinxed house,
The bricks of relationship falls apart
And all flee, not unlike the rats
that desert the sinking ship.

Then sisters sue sisters
And Kens attack Abels
Perhaps they are sworn
Enemies of past lives,
Who are born as
husbands, brothers and wives.

Was it in vain
cried the Christ bold
Man’s worst enemies would
Be in his own household.

Awesome. Well you take any household in India - this is the story. People who live together as one suddenly become strangers, especially when there is a property dispute. I'm adding it to my favorites.10++

Hello Dr.. After a long time.. you did write a new one? .... yeah this is as good as it gets indeed.. you do write well sir... 'Was it in vain cried the Christ bold Man’s enemies would Be in his own household' this is the kind of a poem that they give us to analyze for literature.. in that sense there is lot to analyze here... I like your third stanza too.. I mean what you say is true.. the world has turned out be treacherous and sinful place that, sisters and brothers have become sworn enemies.. that's how it is. in our own house holds there are lots of conflicts.. I mean even I fight with my sister for all sorts of things lolss.. ..... good write.. top marks10++ Cheers shan
