V.O.B - Virginity of Bacteria
















For a long time I have been observing this arrange marriage system. I dont wish to dwell on its intricacies , pros and cons and other polemic contradictions. All I understand has been chalked down in this poem that was inspired by the implausible similarity it has to a bacterial reproductive scheme.



This habitat deep inside the mind's crust
Our genetic ability to adapt an environment
The smiles we fake, in money we trust
Bank balance determining the moral intent

Status scale,reputation,perks of his vocation
Breeding fungus,breathing shallow
sidelining the truth, parental fermentation
Inside everyone is neat and hollow

Color of the skin,height and mother tongue
Endless excuses and stringent criteria
Just like the tapeworms inside a lung
Craving to corrupt the virgin bacteria

Dietary preference and matching stars
Paves way for those who gets that divine area
A progenic mayhem, this bio synthetic scars
Inordinate lust for that virgin bacteria

Fungus wedding fungus,gorgeous looks are bogus
Double the cell, this matchmaking circus
camouflage inner weakness, is the family lustrous?
copulation of trust, a hypnotic consensus

Is he famous? Is he is fibrous? What is his bonus?
Qualifications,medical conditions,this eligibility cactus
I watch and smile at these fake couples in cafeterias
Because everyone yearns for that virgin bacteria

Choices based on making others feel jealous
Love is a sidelined cloned fetus and dying locus
Love is a myth, depleted emotion, a viral hysteria
It fails the litmus test for that virgin bacteria


The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.
Theodore Hesburgh

Sarcasm at its best.

@Rag .. thanks for dropping by my blog .. please explain what you meant by the line

"I must say I have noticed the sting of stalemate resides in every work of yours. (I may be wrong here but thats what I feel)"

Excuse my dim sense of understanding please !!

Ragpicker said...

Hey prats , thanks for that analytical feedback. Well I couldn't agree with you more on whatever you have derived out of those lines. And as far as the that comment about your blog is concerned well I all meant was I felt that there is state of deadlock in life that is depicted in your poems. I get the feeling that someone is stuck between the rights and wrongs of life. Forgive me for my 'dim sense of understanding' if thats not correct :P

@ash : He he you have found that ' bacterial' Lol in waiting :P Thanks for reading and sending your kind response as always.
