Twin Triplets. No.18. Fidelty, Betrayal Poem by Valsa George

Twin Triplets. No.18. Fidelty, Betrayal

Rating: 5.0


With lethal liquid in the syringe
As he approached his aged, mangy dog
Lying still n’ waiting summons, it wagged its tail


Life sap drained to the dregs for her children
Now she, in their eyes ‘an old hag’
They dumped the ‘trash’ into the waste bin!

Time and again man fails to understand the need for compassion and empathy built on human values. A dog has been wagging its tail since its origin on the earth and befriending the man. A mother has ever been toiling for her children too since her entity began. Life is a tale told by an opportunistic man and his actions. It is a moving triplet by you Madam Valsa..

Both the poems are touching. Like the base of a triangle, joined with a line and meeting each other at the vertex, after traveling on their sides. How old pet is treated and how the old mothers and grandmothers are treated. How the master forgot this dying pet was once a device of joy. How the children forgot that this is the woman who gave birth to them, who fed them to grow. Well we are helpless, this life is not designed by us, still it's for us.
