Strawberry Poets

March 4, 2019 | By

A powerful voice in poetry depicting the reality of poetry of our times – a poem by Santasree Chaudhuri.


Strawberry poets with their rosy looks,
fashionably reading their performance poetry.
Thinkers of life poetry – protest,
lament their shabby status of
poverty and poetry, homelessness and despair.
‘Have you experienced the struggle of life?’
questions the poor poet, often swallowed by his own pity,
heat and dust, misery and illiteracy.
Poor Poet, the famous painting by Carl Spitzweg,
the German romanticist painter exemplifying the metaphor of the starving artist in his creation.
Now extravaganza of literature and culture,
the commercialization of creativity with the support of corporate bonanza,
a festival of pomp and fashion.
Life suffers it’s lifeless consciousness, mundane behavior.
The unsung heroes of poetry silently peddle with their unpublished realistic manuscripts.
Alas!
