Theme: Observation

For Priti

How can I contain
her destructive energy
she conceals what she is
her toxic attitude

they all see
as she unshapes destiny
of her cornpone plots
in elitist mode

she lets down her own folks
with mendacious fabrications
brings doom to her own children
who were born innocent

brings shame to her husband
who seeks to see them rise

brings dishonour to us all
who hope to see her change
despite the vanity wall
she raised for years

she won't know what to do
when her parents are dead
or even we are no more

she can't even weep
or scream on anything she touches

she may then squiggle in her fate
alone in a lonely room
while others may look and not care
