She is the mocking thrush
who on the high end branch
sings and perch
laughing at the world
on human errors…

Ah! she imitates in a hoarse voice
satirical,the cons of a
power game
and money launderers of
the affluent race
she hums the low note in tears
twitching her beak in anxiety…
hypocrisy ! thy name
of every face which dons the mask
while innocents become prey
to the hungry mouths of
greed and misery …

in melancholy ,she serenades
about the empty stomach of thousands
homeless shelter innumerable,
falter who on every path
a gory dagger butches
somewhere in the dark hours
echoes intermittently when the din of
haunting the survived ones;
wonders the mocking thrush:
“Oh! how I wish to sing a song
of love and serenity
shall I ever sing a tune
melodic and blissful”,
hiding amidst the camouflaged rue

    Love this part “Oh! how I wish to sing a song
    of love and serenity
    shall I ever sing a tune
    melodic and blissful” Always love! ❤

    Superbly written. The potent money launderers! How they can fall from grace, we can never know.
