The Liberties.. - Poem by Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi

It is the liberty of the sun to flash the light,
It is the liberty of the ozone to filter the uv rays,
When the nature talks about the rights,
In a peaceful manner for thousands of days and nights,

What right are you talking about, human,
When you talk about the liberty of watching porn,
And let our young children watch and groan,
Addictive symptoms are coded in the brain,

The clouds are innocent and don’t know about business,
The running water from the mountains, the flowing air,
Around the globe and the sacrificial love from the hearts,
Need not to be planted with chips to guide the direction.

The right to touch the current is prevented with insulators,
The right to drink from the wells is denied in Metropolis,
The right to over speed is hindered with break breakers,
Why then the contamination of young brains is not censored?


Poet's Notes about The Poem

IN political science text books it is elaborated that watching porn is one of the freedoms of the human.

    A truly great and purposeful write. Sadly such views are considered to be out of sync with the changing times by the powers that be. (Report) Reply

    A great poem. The governments won't do anything about the porn,
    because there is no money in it for them if they do stop it.

    Great write. Some so called freedoms are nor really freedoms. These as elaborated must be restricted. Nice thoughtful poem. (Report) Reply
