Pangs of reality

The laments of scholars

are meaningless;

Just a pretenses

to some publicity,

and to live

in make-believe world

of their Ivory towers.

No where in their method

scholars include exposure

to suffering and poor

in their academic curriculum

The discourses sterile and detached.

for the painless receptors

Too many scholars have fooled themselves

and their students.

The absence of ideas in students

mocked at in abundance

The vigor of exposure and library

not at all stressed as method

To hell with these scholars

Chain yourselves to the

pangs of reality.

Sebastian Rodrigues
