“ To Peregrinate ” ~ and thus engage ~

From an early age

You learn to move,

And thus engage

Though behooves,

A youthful apathy

Of apposite adage,

Save such be stage

Of likely oblivion,

Finds cause negate

Unripe constraints,

Who’s yet to image

Life’s peregrinate,

To eventual restraint!

“ Social Values ” ~ suffering fixed line ~

Words need find

What explains best,

To wayward minds

Ethics to express,

Suffering fixed line

Of modus interest,

In archaic social values

That fails to admit

The painful confusion,

In societal empathy

Held hand me down

Slanted sympathy,

Be but nationalistic abide

Of atavistic coeval apathy,

In which exclusion survives!

“ The Pollutician ” ~ known as politician ~

 

There be a time

Man believed,

The Machiavellian

Twisted mind,

Tho by and by

He edified,

His naïve belief

In guileful beings,

Waged employees

Of the electorate,

Known as politicians

Who would so dupe,

A trusting populace…

 

Thus dictionary tells

Politician be defined,

With a flattering say

Is that of schemer,

Who tries to gain

A sly advantage,

In underhanded way…

 

Hence fit homology

For false egalitarian,

We credulous spirits

Naïvely trust as true,

Offers that of polluter

As reference relevant,

To expose immorality

Of these odious beings,

I coin a name for thee

Pollutician, ye now be!
