The Mad World

 

 

Elegant in form and creation

Yet repugnant in its delight

Needed more in concepts

It knows nothing about

Yet so full of arrogance

Indeed! Arrogance in ignorance

Quirk enrages, the world is mad!

 

Oddity gushes out its progeny

Not a gene of rectitude in sight

Rather a voyage in caustic walkway

Indeed, the world is mad!

 

Constituents of its layers, ominous!

The man in the face-lift, ominous!

The powers in hegemony, ominous!

No sublime contraption of defiance

Indeed, the world is mad!

 

The good is flushed down the conduit

Songs of hate and hostility

sounding rhythmic disorder

fading away the memory of modesty

If ever would be, the world is mad!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Life, A Gory of the Rivalry

 

 

Justice like a mystical tales

Shared for a mere chill at nightfall

With its innumerable morals never

Seen in the light of realities

 

The human mind is wet with greed

Bashing morals to the saucer of illusion

A quake in the terracotta of existence

Nudging a brother to the rivalry of a brother

So the gory of rivalry in life machinates

 

Grinding hard and tough as though it wits

But with little suspicion from the rival

 

A journey of fiasco suddenly divulges

When intentions are not in the selfless rim

raging storms of machination

The dowel that clasp the prostrate favorite

Pitches hates and bitterness in the underdog

 

The gory is hard on cessation

Such a rivalry is a brawl in the jungle of life

Left in the colony of the deities to mollify

So equivocal and rather ethereal in fixation

    Realistic, contemporary and offers glimpses of the darkside man lives at present.
