For dVerse….A Ghazal: Of Men and Women
August 12, 2011
That the ages of man, women, children, repeat themselves, terrify.
that no matter what the century, the ages of ones life identify.
It’s the worse of times, it’s the end of the human race, is the cry,
as the scholars gather and try to organize, notate and identify.
The teenagers are going to hell, the throngs of parents and preachers speechify.
Teachers, physicians elders say they can thru the ages they know and identify.
At the point of no return, the adults find that they can exemplify,
the growth of virtues, ethics, moral compass that all can identify.
Elders look back, see the ages repeat themselves, as men and women magnify:
the world has changed SIGnificantly, making sure it is something we identify.
