The Show Must Go On…!! / Poem by Monika Ajay Kaul

Poem by Monika Ajay Kaul
 
 
The Show Must Go On…!!
 
“The gaudy balloons
humans blow
of egos and self-conceit
for the boasting ‘Scintilla Play’.
 
A glimmering show
of balloons flying high.
But Alas ! Too frangible in fractions ;
not for long, lungs could blow.
 
The burst is inexorable,
and the blast is shrilling.
What thrives thereafter
is a looming silence.
 
The flying show ends
in a sombre show-off.
The exigency prize luckily reaches
the winner – The Showman’s Darling.
 
One wishes..
It could be made of love,
amour-propre and celebrations.
But, wishes are shooting star’s glory.
 
Much like Bursting Balloons..!!”
