democracy hung

When criminals stand for election, Democracy needs an ejection. It takes the road to bane, When people are no more sane. Yearly election, yearly row, Pinches the economy early low. Citizens are sent for duty, Hung for votes is democracy. Ugly clamor for gearing votes, Nation on a descending note. Nothing puts an end to crime, Citizens live in grimy slime. But democracy is for citizens, Who are...

refracted love

Hello! Good tidings to you. After a series of poems, I have come with a video of a poem which attempts to define love. When love is refracted, It falls, gravely fractured, It is mounted on a stretcher, And placed in religious strictures, The eagle views the heart, Love muses with the tart, Love is but an attraction, A nude selfish concoction. Love is bound by biology, Love is bound by community...

session or aggression

Shouts and screams rent the air, A crowd of matured minds flare, Questions and doubts shoot the air, Causing commotion and confusion. The anchor resorts to regulation, Mellow, matured minds in discussion, Is it a session or aggression? The speaker is an awkward teacher, Faced by an agitated ranter, Anger, ego speaks through minds, Not meant for disciplined kind, Is this a development of democracy...

constitution

A chronic note is in the air, The constitution has set it fair, The unjust for centuries done, It has cut off the slaving sun. Freedom has risen to brightness, Progress has moved with steadiness, Fundamental rights in the constitution, Don’t bar anyone from restitution. Religion, caste, creed and language, Live together as glorious baggage, I hail the constitution for its thought, Not the...

it’s her way

Going through the tide, Allows herself to glide Into the strictures of society, Practising homogenous vanity, Her mental strength authored, Practical view which slaughtered, Independence of self, attractive, Her way though not retractive, She gets herself a catch, A husband who is a match.

It’s her own way, To get life going gay.

Hello! Good luck to you all. I am presenting a video of a poem from ‘Serenading Poems Part One’ The title of the poem is ‘Flame’ A match-stick lighted a wick, A flame on it grew thick, My hand by accident flipped, The flame at the end tripped, Flame into my body would grow, Had the flip been slow, My mind was alarmed, By a tragedy unarmed, Too strange was it, When it got...

Hello! Wishing you all that is good. I am here with a video of a poem. The title of the poem is ‘Sting Me Not’ Life! sting me not with bites, I have suffered many nights, When will your trial end?
