Altruism

by Venky

Reveling in inequities and basking in vainglorious pride

The world is a divided kingdom with nowhere to hide

As lives are lost in despicable acts of wanton ignorance and intransigence

Power and politics are altars at which is sacrificed common sense

Hoping against hope for a resplendent, optimistic and new beginning

Where solidarity and reciprocity represent the new in thing.
