Armchair Intellectual

Armchair Intellectual1.jpg
A riot breaks out somewhere…
Saffron and green (but no white!) turn red,
Each with jagged daggers
Of politicized beliefs
Stabbing deeper the common flesh.

He looks out of the window pane
Twitching painfully at the sight,
Such savagery! Such sorrow!
And then with a final sigh,
He plugs in his ipod,
For his choice of noise pollution.
