Revanchist Redux

by Venky

Keyboard combats, labels and a bewildering culture that ‘cancels’

Vicious and vituperative, every peaceful overture it repels ;

For emblems it has looting and shooting, pillaging and rioting

At times enforcers of the very law embracing this new found calling

Thereby giving to an insidious pandemic, a complete free reign

The world is uncomfortably privy to a horror hitherto unseen;

Brother v brother; neighbor against neighbor everyday is enacted the morbid play

Are we as humanity, even sentient any more as we continue in this gory way?

(Word Count: 86)
