The Real Man Within A Man - Poem by M.D DINESH NAIR

The man within every man
Is an actor of all sorts.
All across the continents
And well beyond the seas he is the same.

While announcing his sweet love
He often twists with lust like a bow
While pretending to speak to the lady with a heart
His eyes scale up and down her physique like a rat.

Man has ever been a creature of all seasons.
Dear women, I am afraid your dreams are just woven
On the filaments of man`s foibles unknown.
Dear women, exceptions if any, are too just shadows without Objects!

He is shrinking in size and strata.
Augustus the king and Abraham Lincoln the icon are no more.
We have around us only a multitude of men
And they are just the ghosts of slain virtues.

A man is a woman`s saviour!
Hundreds Italians and Indians speak out.
A man is a woman`s guardian!
Thousands of Americans and Africans write about.

In the confession chambers of the tainted thoughts
Every man surges with a mind uneven.
In the innocent world of these eves
Why are these Adams weaving the tales of agony?

The Man within every man is a beast
Why do you tame it hey, woman of West or East?
A man is a bubble and
He fades out before you see him in real.

    We, womenfolk are indeed disillusioned and all around, we hear the clatter of idols falling and breaking! ! Dinesh why do you draw such a dismal picture of you men? ? We would like to believe otherwise! ! Don't make such sweeping condemnations! (just joking....Ha...Ha....! !) (Report) Reply
