SYSTEM DEFIANT

K.R.BALAKRISHNAN

I bemoan my own poverty
Of ignorance
On intricate internet matters.

Today when I asked it
To go to the hell
It went into the heaven.

When I clicked on the mouse
To take something forward
It guided it backward
Oh ! Unskilled fingers .

So I folded my own body into four
To become a computer frame
And put some thorns around
But alas! It could not hold anything in.

I bemoan my own poverty
Of ignorance
On intricate internet matters ;

Oh ! I am flabbergasted.
This system is like my child.

Realising my poverty
I opted to be a poet.
