metamorphosis

what on earth happened to kindness
it just melted into altruism
which found its way into academia
and got called ‘untrue’
what on earth happened to smiling
it was stuck on a pervert’s face
at the kiraane ke dukaan
and got lost among all the unfelt insecurity
what on earth happened to hugging
it was received in solitude
in showers and swimming pools
with ‘closed’ boards
what on earth happened to thanking
it became a persistent symbol of politeness
an untrue form of being civil, being phony
it was eaten up by all the men in tuxedos
at the Wall street
what on earth happened to apologizing
it was found in coffee shops
shared by people skipping queues
and not being said to those serving
it was found in malls
shared by people fighting for items on sale
and not being said to those manufacturing them
it was-

what on earth happened to earth
it rotated
and revolved
and rusted
away to its glorious end

each day, hotter
each moment,
harder
big
long
hard
end
