Sankhajit Bhattacharjee Poem 271

Scientific Research Fellow in University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee

Beauty Contest

She won fair and lovely award on February, 2019.

She also won thousand eyes.

Beautiful look never signifies good habit-

an angel from outside was a witch from inside.

How could ordinary eyes understand?

They were killed before they could express.

Poetry of this era is never an outcome of emotion-

it survives due to logic and twist of simple words.

Her award is of no value now

as her smile is not natural-

it's a serious acting.

A sudden flash of light once forced the eyes to close

but now a prevailing darkness has led the eyes to open!


BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on September 16, 2021:

There are a few beauties that have those deceiving eyes.

It's not just the women.

We learn, after it's too late.
