My Poems

Gone are the days…

Raktim Sen

Gone are the days of home-cooked meals.
Now is the time for fast food deals.
TV and Web are putting their stains.
Gone are the books that nourished our brains.
Parents are out and experts are in.
Parenting has become a cardinal sin.
Innocence in stolen from the innocent mind
And replaced with obscenity of every kind.

It’s the right of the adult- that’s all we care.
The rights of the children die in despair.
And when the fruits ripen as we devised,
We scratch our heads and act pleasantly surprised!
