ANOTHER ROTATION

ANOTHER ROTATION

A Poem by M.Babu
"

"Another rotation. History repeated. The bad- incarceration. The worse- reseated."

"

Staggering Fear.

Enveloping will.

Never stopping.

Never still.

 

Killing dreams.

Destroying morale.

Breaking seams.

Hopes totaled.

 

Pride quintupled.

Minus the Courage.

Hearts overwhelmed.

Souls pillaged.

 

Money matters.

Pills prescribed.

Depressed daughters.

Sons but bribed.

 

Corruption rampant.

Leaders immoral.

Strength is fading.

Temptation viral.

 

Lips sealed.

With seductive kisses.

Eyes sewn.

Sight in pieces.

 

Hunger morphed.

Turned to Enterprise.

War erupted.

Oil the prize.

 

The big man lost.

The little discouraged.

That is the cost.

Of Hearts disparaged.

 

Words misused.

Suits crispier.

Power undervalued.

Deception pricier.

 

Another rotation.

History repeated.

The bad- incarceration.

The worse- reseated.

The poem is amazing. I like the many true and powerful statements.
"Money matters.
Pills prescribed.
Depressed daughters.
Sons but bribed."
In a world controlled by the 3 per cent. Common people and common sense will be tossed to the road side. A strong ending to a poem with the words of truth are alive in your words. A excellent poem.

This is an excellent poem with such strong and convincing philosophical thought. I like the bold yet factual statements in each stanza that grip the reader with their rich insight of the harsh reality that today's world brings.

You've explained the circle of life quite vividly and with such great use of words as well. There are just so many stanzas that I love!

All I can say is, a job well done and an excellent poem on the facts of life.

You have a way in your writing that I feel so drawn to. =) Nice job with this. I loved it. It has so many meanings for me and it's brilliant! Each line has power wrapped in them. I definately enjoyed this piece. It's actually sad to know some history repeats over time when it could have been stopped if people only see what would happen if they didn't care.. -sigh- We have history so we can have change for the better not for the worse. If only people could see that.. perhaps our future would be bright and not decline and add more problems in our hands. But anyways, I love this. It makes me think. Another wonderful work!! =D Such a strong poem of truth and wisdom.

Love the short lines structure, gives more power to the idea presented here...a summary of the wrongs in the world.
