Theme: Satire


With timely intervention
The reality of life unfolds
Their innermost facades
They wear under an outer mask
Put on under some pretension,
Yet they get unwrapped at last
In due course of time —
The mask held so closely and firmly
Melts in tears that a society sheds
Enunciating the castle of pseudo gods
Bearing the brunt of their misdeeds;
Superstitious beliefs and rituals,
Scaring stereotyped hocus-pocus
And entrapping paraphernalia
Make no wonder any longer
Nor do they hypnotize or cast spell
On God-fearing credulous souls,
For spiritual awareness makes the victims
Unearth the abyss of their immoral misdeeds;
Seeming dome of their sinister richly castle
Poorly topples down turning to leveling dusts.
