Valsa George


Twin Triplets.No.13


GREED

Nature’s bowl so full
Yet with an avarice to hoard,
Marauding waves beat upon the shores!

MAYHEM

Economy draining, prices soaring
Crimes rising, Nature roaring
Life searing, Rulers snoring!

    I agree with the poet note, but the leaders snoring? Are they really snoring in India? They are the ones, who are awake through out the day and night to suck the anemic blood of poor Indians.. (Report) Reply

    HAARP is one machine that world governments like to keep active Valsa.
    It's as though the world is caught in the withering grip of unavoidable change. The tide is turning and poles are shifting. If global warming is indeed man made, it is only because it is made by men who stand to profit from it or don't care about the futures of their own or anybody elses children. You have it all in there Valsa. A poem that only a true poet could write. Proper job :) (Report) Reply

    How rightly have you added your notes to the self speaking couplets!
    We are on the verge of utter devastation of all kinds
    As the mother of tragedies has no concern for anyone.

    Your twin triplets have enough potential to tell about things beyond the sub continent, Madam Valsa. (Report) Reply

    I think it is endemic the whole world over. Governments tax the poor and let the rich hoard their wealth. Good poem Valsa. (Report) Reply

    Succinctly expressed and how very true. Liked both the triplets especially the second one. How helpless we find ourselves in the clutches of these usurpers of power. (Report) Reply
