When The Bubble Bursts - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah

People worry much about being fresh out
of emotions of love due to ageing.
Sensible people think a hundred times
before giving their data in the nets
for dating and for life with single moms.
In a society, which has freewheeling lifestyles,
people face no problems by typing their email-id.
But in countries where people are at large,
men are called to a place, valuables seized,
punched and thrown out with bleeding injuries.
They are also warned not to report to the police
or else hard copies of their nude photos will be
sent to their wives when the soft copies flash in nets.
Some in western culture are frank about gayness.
In some rural hamlets of India, the gay guys are tonsured,
marked with block and red dots on their body
and forced to ride on donkeys while the boys and men
beat them with brooms and slippers.

Problems they face in plenty when their age crosses sixty.
Some dye their hairs, walk erect with efforts, take drugs,
have massage of their body, swallow tablets to rejuvenate,
go for walk and gym and spend for Psychic healing of mind.
Clairvoyants and relationship coaches pester them.
The governments too retire people at fifty eight.
How frenetic and health freaks people are!
Ladies rush to get appointments for breast implants.
In a free comedy festival in Fed.Square in Melbourne,
the comedians make the audience sing, clap, dance and laugh.
Most of the ladies in briefs enjoyed sunshine and comedy.
But nobody cares.When all are one and the same, no dog barks.
If a lady dares to show her knee in India,
people offer harsh comments about her.
But those in the celluloid world are like their sisters abroad.
If the oldies who don't feel exaltations of love,
write philosophical poems, then will you read till the end?
