Theme: Wisdom

Saraswati's Flame

A teenager in the Dreamland
toys with a gun in his hand
laughs and kills nineteen lambs
not a shade of guilt or qualms…
Lakshmi’s blessings abound
riches human race hound
where else such opulence found?
When wealth becomes a curse
freedom turns into a hearse
crime becomes a pleasure
baneful, Lakshmi’s treasure
lays bare the nakedness of lust
fear snatches the heart of trust…
Let Saraswati ignite wisdom’s sparkler
temper the arrogance of gold and glitter
guide the soul of man to the divine flicker
integrate the two to the moral twitter….
