“Knocking Shops”

**************

Notorious are certain corners earmarked for bordellos,

Females in deshabille beckon philanderers with hellos,

Exposing their kittenish knockers before dandy dudes,

Creating shameful scenario that a civilian ever eludes !

No to speak of civilized people, but also the collgiate clan,

Are wooed by such buxom bodies spoiling their life-span !

Meddlesome brokers and tomboys entrap innocent men,

And usher them into the knocking shop unto its sexy den !

The rich and royal class and similar fat cats spend all nights,

Enjoying dances with drinks and occasionally facing fights,

The young scoundrels and vagabonds, too, add fuel to fire,

Some dominant dignitaries also get bogged into the quagmire !

Though the Government and our leaders are all aware of that,

Any public commotion is always hushed up so as to fall flat !

The hidden supporting power is nothing else than hush money,

Which is creating havoc here and there, yet licked like honey !

It lies on the youth hence to come forward for any renaissance

Among the people to be rigid enough to uproot such nuisance !

    Very beautiful meaningful impacting poem of essence
    But how will those understand for whom this is meant,
    For their vocabulary has never such impacting words known
    and they have acquired a culture that only perpetrate nonsense…..

      @Vishvnand, Thanks, Sir ! Those
      for whom the poem is meant are not the ones who create such havoc
      and/or spread such quagmire in the civil life, but for the intelligentsia
      who could impart lessons among the youth for public renaissance for
      eradicating such cornered nuisance vitiating civil family lives.

        You have a valid point and to some extent it is resorted to. But unfortunately it seems very few are those who are conditioned to listen to sane advice. Most of them prefer mocking at the advice & want to buy experience to repent when its too late. Proper strict Laws can help but it seems they are made only for insincere lax implementation and provide scope for corruption. The situation is very lax and ill, very difficult for enforcing any improvement.

    Ashwini,
    good, well said.
    This is a poison that rots every society in which it is tolerated.
    ” Though the Government and our leaders are all aware of that,
    Any public commotion is always hushed up so as to fall flat !
    The hidden supporting power is nothing else than hush money,
    Which is creating havoc here and there, yet licked like honey !”

    In an era of instant gratification and legalised or hushed up vice’s and where the youth is mostly in turmoil and confusion , very very few are able to undestand and differenciate between right and wrong.
    Everything today is made such that it fits like a jigsaw piece and filth is justified and values are called “being orthodox”. All organizations are hand in hand and the people are controlled and hearded like sheep. Its a pity that era by era , those people who really see the deciets and decay are reducing. But thankfully such people will always be there..forgive me mada but ifeel very strongly about all these things. A beautiful poem.
