Elastic Morality (A poem)

Its either black or white,
Rigidness high while judging other’s matter
Dish things out, but can’t take from platter?
.
What grade your child’s getting?
Staring the dress, “which sect u adhere”?
There’s much “Haram in your Halal, I swear”.
.
 Judgments sharp & opinions negative.
Got sentenced, ‘t was inevitable
Dealing with a moralist,  goodness a fable.
.
But Moralities turn lax & principle elastic
When self was to answer
Grey is important, as line in white & black blur
.
“My Children are only children
they’ll soon learn”..
“what haram or halal? …. I earn”.
.
“Well life is about gives and takes”
and “opinions often misleads”
There’s eventual goodness in all My deeds.
.
Fundamentalist for others
For self are temperate
Guessed rightly, only Hypocrites can relate.

That Despicable Self (A Poem)

Selfish people
With indulgent lives
Denying others
Even vulgarity shys.
Living on lies
Eating on vile
Mean in sight
Despicable smile.
Using nobility
And virtue metaphors
Are at loss
These bigoted trolls.
Rage overpowers against
Such brainless fanatics
Deal very wisely
And method Socratic.
Slow and steady
Yet very consistent
Some rhythmic drops
Can crack mountains.
For such sporadic vexers
Becomes that regular teaser
Give lessons of lifetime
but not of Brutus to Caesar.
