Poetry

I WILL NOT DANCE TO YOUR BEAT: BY Frankhad

Written by Editor

If to make Earth cries like a sinner in the hell
To make the hoi polloi make a yearnful yell
And the vagrant orphans appear unwell
Are your sadistic clanging bell
I will not dance to your beat

If all your drums are of hypocrisy and of enmity
If seeking knowledge is to conceal probity
To manipulate the less privileged and yourself the remote entity
If all your voices are crocodile tears and empty
I will surely not dance to your beat

If those good deeds of yours
And those sweet words of yours
With those ominous offers of yours
Are gratuitous Greek gifts of yonks
I will not dance to your beat

Life is to live long and enjoy by everybody
But if your plans are to leverage anybody
And to make world’s inheritance four your body
Even after your awareness, you insist on swindling somebody
I will never ever dance to your beat.
