Poetry 2017 Longlist Hema Ravi

THE ASTUTE

Choices made - loss for one,
another cashes in the process.
Mass indulgence in the decision,
the digression horrifying for many
bringing in thoughts of
guns, bloodshed and societal divide.

For the downtrodden 
a Messiah come
who'd bring in radical changes;
Reality hits hard,
Bully Pulpit 
often, a double-edged sword!

Every battle lost and won
a turning point in history.
political ideologies fractured,
the resultant slump in values
eventually yields to upswing.
Until then, power struggles continue.
