Maya*

 
“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”
― Albert Einstein

 

That Illusory
state
we further
obfuscate
 
By concocting
delusion
in quixotic
confusion
 
Error upon
Error
in dystopic
profusion
 
Dreaming
forever
of conquests
Beyond
 
Plunging
this planet
in Slough
of Despond
 
*
 
Nature bared
us her secret
of nuclear
fission
 
Ask yourself
Why?
What was her
mission?
 
She tires
of us:

And would
her Plans
now abort
 
Our Time
she wishes
to cut quickly
short
 
Failing to
inspire us
seeks now to
retire us
 
Think again
now:
is that why
the Virus?
 

*
 
But we
will not rest
nor our actions
arrest
 
And still push
her far
more mayhem
more war

 
*
 
Since nothing
will move us
She must
remove us

 
*
 
“I gave them
Free Bounty
they invented
Dearth
 
They wish
to be Venus
instead of
green Earth?
 
If that they
desire
Let there
be Fire

 
*
 
If they
will be
profane
let it be
Ukraine
 
In cauldron
of hellfire
in metaphor
of Cain
 
*
 
So once more
like yore
Slay
one another
again

 
* Maya, in Vedic ideas, is the cosmic force that has us believe in the reality of the phenomenal world.
