On Human Vultures

On Human Vultures short poem

Photo by Sili[k]

They’d whisper to you, ominous things,
With damned, grim faces giving bad tidings,
Just to cause you to panic,
And when you’d turn away in distress,
Jauntily, they’d flap their wings, and wink at each other,
Knowing that soon enough, with misery, out of fear,
Your vision would go dim,
With heart starting to beat too slow for one to hear,
Seeing you collapse with so few breaths left,
They’d come closer to you, and somberly declare,
Alas! You are almost dead!
And now it’s our duty, to respectfully devour
Your flesh, and chew your every bone
As it would be unkind and unfair
To let you lie here, all alone
Dead, and all by yourself,
What if you rot?
There are many uncivilized animals around,
Oh, and vermin
To humiliate you, they are bound,
But do not be afraid — We are already here,
Even though we are not really hungry,
With you, we shall be now, for the next few hours,
But you don’t say “thank you” to your friends,
Because the pleasure is all ours!

We all know someone like that. The start of a new year is a good time to rid ourselves of such people

Hearts wounded only know the real pain……..and the only cure……never revisit those graveyards….
Time is the best healer…….seek the company of love………pamper yourself with your own love to begin with and the future generation will get to read an one more story of a successful and a peaceful soul….
