English Poetry

 

My vines have been yellowing as if jaundiced,

It was all so green and alive a month ago.
Perhaps it’s nature’s way of forecasting ,
That times ahead would be difficult and trying.
They say money makes the world go round,
At the end of the day it’s about money I have found.
The rent, EMI’s and savings have to be taken care of,
These are times of being monetarily scary and out of its love.
Someone, somewhere is surely making money,
All losses and and no profit sounds a bit funny.
For I see daily – its a full house almost everyday,
But I am somehow forced to believe what they say.
This recession is such an irritating prick,
Delays in salary and finances is making me sick.
Doubt the lies in what is portrayed as truth ,
I need some dose of dough my nerve to soothe.
This Show could well be a ploy or a plot,
A strategy well defined by a clever despot.
Whatever it be but the truth will soon be found,
For behind all the lies theres truth somewhere around.

    very beautiful poem . Kudos
    Liked immensely the elegant manner it conveys its meaning.
    Yes there is confusion galore, “why is recession” theories explode
    None is hitting bull’s eye and quickly correcting deteriorating mode
    The commercialization has increased craving & commitments
    And now sincere people working hard are bearing the brunt facing sad situation…

    Krishna,
    the feeling of exasperation is very well expressed.
    The title is apt. So mush of it in politics and finance and repeated in the media.
    “Someone, somewhere is surely making money,
    All losses and and no profit sounds a bit funny.”
