Why fret

More haters than lovers
Everywhere
In a family
Within a community,
A State
Country
Between countries
On the whole..
Everywhere

The powerful kill the powerless
The one in power
Manipulates
Exploits
Takes advantage

The rich do not like the rich
The poor are not good to the poor
The rich hate the poor
This is kaliyug
The poor envy the rich

Damn this world
Far from this madding crowd
Away and alone

“there is loneliness
In this world so great
That you can see it
In the slow movement
Of the hands of a clock”

Why fret!!
Why hate!!
Spread love and peace…

    A coruscating indictment of the ills besetting the world,neatly counterpointed at the finale with true poetic aplomb.
