A Cantankerous Vermin

My senses
Get depreciated
When a boisterous crowd
Turns bedlam.

Paroxysm unleashes
And I learn fatalism,
Indignantly,
Furiously,
Babbling for
Measures,
Precautions
Diametrically opposing
The Giver
And
The Taker,
Witnessing
A Carnage
Genocides,
Burnt human carcass;
CAPITALISM,
Mercenaries,
Jostling,
Democracy,
To irregularly menstruate,
And
Podgy politicians
Poaching thousand millions
Sit poised and ponder,
To make a Sacrilege.
Pockmark
On
Me
You
And
We shamble
With our children
Unless
Sopped
With freebies.

For raising voice
I am called
A
Delinquent
Ludicrous
Impudent
Cantankerous
Vermin!

  1. Louis Kasatkin

    Direct and confrontational;my kind of poem.The polemic is undiluted by any sentiment,which reinforces the punchiness of the style.Given prevailing socio-economic conditions,this is highly topical CNN poetry. [Editorial footnote:-I added the tag”contemporary” for the ease of reference and also did a bit of light punctuation work]
