Not Perfect | A Poem by Ananya S. Guha

There is the never-ending
story, cause and effect,
how they were killed,
which community they belong to,
these are never-ending
stories which are called
narratives, fables, myths
and repositories of media news. Let’s go and report
these fascinating facts
build analogies, anachronisms as they happen creating untold truth,
writing our searing
memories away in old-fashioned armchairs, throwing those precious
brickbats at one another.
This is hype. Newspaper reports, media newscasts.
The other is type.
Death in earthquakes, floods, famine.
In these stories we do not
worry, as we have less control.
Human beings after all are not perfect.
