Corporate Chaos

written by: Bipul Banerjee

 

Steel elevators swiftly ferrying
Lifeless puppets
Floor to floor
To cold boardrooms

The 9 to 5 punch cards
Occasionally infuse
Life in otherwise

Moulds of indifference
Where everyone is
‘Plugged-in’, phones smarter than humans

Who holds the strings to them?
Needs?
Wants?
Ambitions?
Technology?

All party to a cold blooded race
Criminals of cut-throat competition
Morals
Values
Ethics
All resting on
Shining book-selves

It is a jungle
Carnivorous beings
Full of
Lust
Greed
Power
Comparison
Moving violently
To be the first
To kill!!

Yes, to kill
And what great success
Has been achieved!

Humanity has been killed
They experience solace
The suicidal killers
Cruise on to spiritual vacations
Yoga and meditation

Knowing not
What crime have
They committed and
Against whom??

Had it not been the encounter
All would have found
Peace within…
