Adding upto Zero


They’re all out on the street,

The numerous protestors,

Their banners and placards,

Against the mighty investors,

And their legal guards,

Forcing them to retreat.

The songs that they all chant,

The slogans that they cry,

Do not really mean much,

And all the passers-by,

Do not notice as such,

And it’s not that they can’t,

They’re looking for a hero,

Which neither of them was,

And none can be, ever

Obeying all the laws

Average citizens together,

Adding up to zero.

Sometimes the protesting in most countries are like adding up to zero,due to a wrong approach and bad timing with no clear demand or point to make,just noise and chaos in their wake!

Perfect assessment there nilum!

Thanks for sharing!
