Anathema.......Racist Chisms - Poem by saadat tahir

Verily nip yon repulsive bud.
Roil hands in frothing suds.
The black prince spurs.
Thou callest em racial slurs.
Blue eyed of the Aryan clan.
Resplendent me the perfect man.
Raise my hand in fervent salute.
Err doom doth dilute.
That nose, the abominable chin.
Oh thou shalt not win!
Deny them the blabbering gobs.
Snatch from breasts their favored throbs.
Sanctimonious! Dare you! Me smug?
Equate you, me, to the veritable thug?
This then heaven's global village.
None shalt, save me, pillage.
Trust me...Look me in the eye.
Oh that pie?
Your looks are wily!
Lookest naives too highly!
Seek thee villain; that canst be thine!
Dare thou cast upon the sacred shrine?
Hath thou not been apportioned a blame.
Cherish ye heathen a floundering claim.

    A VERY fine well written poem Saadat.
    Great imagery used.
    The title 'Anathema' (meaning taboo, curse) plays on the reader's curiousity and draws them into the poem.
    Wonderful poem to read and ponder on. I feel sure many will recognise themselves in reading it.
    10/10 from me. Thank You for sharing Saadat. (Report) Reply

    Wow! The anathema (or divine punishment) of your title is delivered with Shakespearean extravagance and that innate self righteousness that infects all those whose fundamentalism is absolute. Excellent poem. Love Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply
