Where Have Gone Those Masks? - Poem by M.D DINESH NAIR

Where have they gone?
All those masks of the past!
Many masks hiding faces of the ones clever.

One was of love pure,
Another was of friendship innocent
And another was of care entwining.

Those masks had a power
That mesmerised the weak minds for some time.
Where are those masks?

No one sells them as the marketeers
Don`t have much to fill the wallet
From these little transparent masks now.

Masked faces have faded out from amidst us all
And there walk many without faces at all!
The poet himself has none.

    In the multitude of faceless people, we are also one..... so where shall we fit in the mask? Pungent irony and satire! ! (Report) Reply
