Unfriendly Host

If not the thoughts are entertained by the considerate host

Where do they turn to, if they feel troubled by constant scorn

If the unstable world collapses on them even before their wishes are fulfilled

Parting with them will be unfortunate and heart feels like a pauper

The commands to tame the unruly thoughts seems an utter waste of energy

What is it, if not ineptness to accommodate the truthful thoughts?

Throwing them away like foul water in a bowl where tarnished hands were washed

Without giving them proper names they are ridiculed and branded scoundrels

Such is the fate of the tumultuous world where the disorderly and derogatory are listened to

Insults become golden words through the well-articulated sarcasm

The touch of ineptitude transforms an otherwise calm gathering into a hostile situation
