Anticipation

big_368903_1432698348

Isn’t it an irony of life,

avarice and greed

steers some lives,

to amass, accumulate and hoard,

money, money and more money,

in anticipation,

that it will ensure a ticket,

for a lavish life for generations to come,

only to realize

in a single moment,

it is nothing but scrap of paper!

In response to the daily prompt : Anticipation

    The demonetisation has just shown that every dog has its day- now that the 100 rs note is the king in a true Sense. Very well written in the comparative sense.

      Actually this step was required to clean up the mess our country was in…….yes the poor are facing tough days, but so are some of the other fish caught in the net. The mess of cleaning up a corrupt system of 70 years will take a while.

    You’ve expressed yourself so well Radhika! And you’re absolutely right. This whole system of accumulating only leads to more greed. Morality & judgement become lost causes….

    Well put! The worse is the 500 crores wedding and the bride wearing 20 crores jewelry. Such a slap on the face of people who are starving to death!

    ” in a moment, just scraps of paper” rightly said Radhika….intelligent play of words on the most important topic at the moment.

    A perfect write-up in regards to Demonetization.
    Demonetization must have fallen like a lightning on people with black money (I know people who don’t have black money also suffered cause of it).
