Weak Human - Poem by Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi

They are great and follow the rules,
Never touched the kids to be the pedophiles,
Sincere in their tasks and never claimed to bribe,
And be bribed, the chocolate producers of the world,
Play with the nerds, who think of the perks,
Once they board the plane to reach certain destinations,
Their values gone with their shoes, wearing the slippers,
Holding two teenagers in their hands,
Feed them the liquors and the cheap food,
Buy for them clothes before they are naked,
On the seashore of the poor threshold,
The colored and colorless people,
Do what they wouldn’t do in their home land.

    Once they board the plane to reach certain destinations,
    Their values gone... There is power in your writing. Nice poem.

    It is unfortunate that once the people board the plane to a foreign destination, they leave behind all the values and behave like rogues with a feeling that their identity won't be revealed! A man of true worth cannot have double standards! A powerful write! (Report) Reply

    This is such a heart felt and evocative piece. Totally agree that people should be decent at home and abroad and respect the people and cultures in the lands they visit. Respect always, brilliantly, gently and persuasively proferred. (Report) Reply
