BROKEN LIVES~by Jyotirmaya Thakur




Image may contain: outdoor

Promises are made to be broken,
Ulterior motives rule gifts of token,
The sky is bruised by fake falcons,
Egoes have magnified in vulcans.

Lives jeopardized for impression,
Silence for old the only expression,
Conversation avoided in confrontation,
Cold war in tune with sophistication.

Machiavelli is widely read and imitated,
Appearances of deception validated,
To look good and kill is often related,
Cutthroat hypocrisy is widely celebrated.

Devil incarnated is evident everywhere,
Small children outsmart elders in affairs,
Apocalypse is very close in hemisphere,
Purpose of birth is lost somewhere.

Lives are broken in evil fragments ,
Virtues are substituted by violence,
Homes are breeding hatred in silence,
Old and infants at mercy of subtraction.
