MASK

a poem by SIVAPRASAD V, India

MASK

Thou were the underrated
Perhaps the most underrated
Everyone had a glimpse of thee
Though with fear and anxiety

Found thee in sickhouses
Among the sick and the curer
Thou were drenched in her sweat
Who picked up our trash

Masked men were a nightmare
As they snatched and robbed
Rogues ruled the roost in streets
Masking in and masking out

Tides turn overnight
Thou become the symbol of the civilized
Man’s identity goes awry
As thee steal his face

Thou art the real game changer
Out of the blue, thou rise
Fencing the innocent smiles
And my beloved’s thirsty lips

Replacing man’s pretentious mask
Thou steal the show
Cocooning the noblest animal
And sieving his life breath
