Vulture of Culture

Vulture of Culture

A Chapter by Akshay Rawal
"

Culture rhymes with Vulture, and this is Culture personified

"


I am a vulture of culture

I con up scraps, of history

Of nature, of stature,

Ingenuous traps, of mystery. 


**


Scavenging catharsis,

Avenging the verses

Of misfortune, frivolous

whispers, tunes, scrupulous

setbacks, those unkind perils

At tracks of mankind, their ills.


**


It's the multure of culture,

with a dull chirp, a vulture

cons up, scraps of history

And I curl up, as a sliver

In the wraps of this tree.

What a great commentary on our times. I read it as someone who partially understands what influences them, but isn't willing to go much beyond the surface to find out the depth of history and culture and absorb those things in meaningful ways. I suppose this could apply to many things in our current moment. What seems to define the modern human is the ability to say and share things that grab attention, but sometimes true understanding is overlooked. I really enjoy the way your poems offer a sense of sophistication to a rhyming format. You have interesting messages in your poetry. Great to meet you, Akshay.

Culture, personified. And so many beg, borrow and steal from others.
This is unique. I like it. The flow is kinda lyrical too.

I feel this is wonderful Metaphor.
Taking bits of history, of life...the scraps others may leave alone...
we jump at the chance to get them within our writing beak...and poeticize...
