Clear and Loud

Clear and Loud

A Poem by Shivam Murari
"

A taunt on vain people who love bragging about themselves, specially those who are selfish and mean and refer others as that to hide their insecurity.

"




Clear and Loud

 

 

“I got this car, on my birthday,

What did you get?” Said the shade gray.

“Nothing too specific,” was my reply

Compared to the red Maserati with that guy

And this gave him another chance to sneer

Car keys in one hand, another had a beer.

He just needs a chance

To brag and feel proud

About things he didn’t buy

That is clear and loud.

 

“Can I touch it,” I heard a friend pray.

“But if something happens, you will have to pay.”

Burning in my belly was a fire red hot

When test seasons began, everything he forgot.

I want to seek a chance to show him that he is vain,

His car, his money, throw them all in drain.

Calling others names,

Your parents allowed

You are poor at other games

That is clear and loud.

 

Filled with self-importance, he is selfish and mean

Lies and frames others, insecurity is in his gene.

Stating like a chatterbox, cloaked in foolish gown,

Never does he succeed, put pulls others down

The car’s red will fade and so will his chauvinism

The truth will soon splash about his materialistic romanticism

So let me give you quid pro quo

Wrapping your hypocrisy in shroud

Your self-occupation will soon go

That is clear and loud.

 

You may think you are rich, but you are poorest at heart

The bird won’t see what it is shitting on, be it car or cart,

This money, this attitude and cheapness go hand-in-glove

What will be left out is what you earned with love

You may hide your weakness in the cloak of show off

When you will stand on your feet, nothing will be left off

You will realize all of it

When you will stand alone in the crowd

The cloth will be too large to knit

That is clear and loud.

Author's Note

Shivam Murari
First off, apologies for the hiatus. There was no net connection for around 30 days so I was not able to answer the Read Requests. I will soon get to the 1000 RRs which have accumulated.

I think there is a particular disorder in marginally few people in this world of bragging. It is still acceptable when the person speaking earns the money, but those who tantalize on their parent's money are worse. It gets even worse when the psychopath learns to be hypocrite, selfish and mean to others. Waiting for more? Well then comes the category of the countable few who inspire this poem. Along with bragging, being selfish and mean, these people call others as selfish to hide their insecurity. I know one such pitiable person.

I stay away from such persona.. I hate such show off and self centered we call them. This is really amazing, We do have such people around who keep showing off their richness and money centeredness.
I strictly boycott such people and move on, You need to be rich with papers?
You must be rich with heart and speech you utter :)
Wonderful narration Shivam my brother :)

More than a poem, I might call it a rap. I liked the rhyme you have employed here. I was enjoying it. But, I cursed when it ended. It left me wanting more.

Really, braggers are everywhere. But, intellect is something, which is not in possession of everyone. But, let me add 'till the time the earth and the moon are in existence, 'till then there will be brageers. Lol!

Wow, a powerful write which has a depth of anger to it. I hate show-offs also and find these 'loud' people embarrassing. Some might find satisfaction from all the things they have, for little effort, but those that work hard and are satisfied and grateful for what they have own a richness of heart and soul far more precious and sustaining. A great write. Margaret

anytime, pal
Too bad about that internet connection! I was wondering what you were up to Shivam. :P

Now them, about the poem.... :P I liked this poem, and I don't think there is a soul out there that couldn't relate. (I mean, lets face it, even these braggers are irritated by their kind. Maybe because they "stole their spotlight," but they're still irritated by it). There were a few grammar errors but aside from that muy bien! Keep writing and good luck catching up on those dang read requests! :P

Braggarts should read up on the life of the Greek philosopher Diogenes of Sinope. There's wisdom in this poem. Materialism won't fill an inner void.
