Irony

Parents
hold their toddler
with firm grip
of love and care
ensuring the child
best security
    - regardless of the environ -
a basic requirement
for growth, stability
harmony and success
 
Inversely
where the toddler alone
latches on to the parents
    - forlorn and neglected -
remains vulnerable
with every possibility
of becoming estranged
and getting misplaced
in the milieu of life
 
This parental neglect
mutates the toddler
into a disgruntled person
discarded to live a life
stuck in the grooves of
coercive and manipulative societies
divided by isms, castes
and sectarian dogmas
ruled by the selfish
in a state of governance
that stands wrinkled and defiled
by the mafia
of merciless politicians -

An ironical
but true
diktat of today!

Comments on this Poem

Comment In spite of strong parental grip children go astray nowadays. Politicians and dons abuse them.

Comment The feelings are genuine. Can we do something; a common minimum activity; apart from evolving a consensus?

Comment So true. There is a french saying "qui aimes bien chatie bien" meaning "he who likes well chastises well".
