Are you frustrated-fed up?
quipped a reader
so much of critique
in your poems on corporates....

No, no I protest
can you give up on your family
just because everything
isn't perfect?

yet, you don't pretend
that everything is fine
give smiles that do not
reach your eyes
and sweep everything
under the carpet

you point out flaws
so improvement happens -yes,
you don't give up on families
nor do you give up
on the source of your bread

you don't give up on a source
which can still be a haven in a hapless world
providing possibilities
for fulfilling your aspirations!
