Life is a journey, with its good and its bad,
And sometimes experiences you wish you never had.
Let’s start with ‘A’ and see how far we go,
Affairs that are addictive, fleeting as snow.
With ‘B’ a Bond may not necessarily form,
007 is better than a societal norm.
‘C’ though short, rarely lends its sight,
Cheating and trickery have their own rightful might.
In ‘D’ many find their highest pleasure,
Be it destruction, an organ or end forever.
For ‘E’ is considered a bad grade in school,
Envy for the first often makes you a fool.
‘F’ is for a Failure and also a Friend,
Can each be from the other, ever rend?
In ‘G’, liars see the God, the one supreme,
That faith behind every nefarious scheme.
Through ‘H’ we Hustle, though rarely well,
Employing tactics that often ring the knell.
From ‘I’ we get Individuality inflated,
Till our egos get deathly bloated.
Coming to ‘J’, we forget what is Just,
But use the word every chance we must.
Then comes ‘K’, with it a Killing desire,
Smiles galore hiding an angry fire.
‘L’ for Love is but just a joke,
It dies never born, sans a single croak.
The ‘M’ in Mankind is utterly useless now,
The rest sounds more apt somehow.
At ‘N’ there’s Nothing that’s sensible enough,
Except the word that’s more than fluff.
As for ‘O’, Oblivious we all are,
Every moment turning a bit too bizarre.
‘P’ for Punishment is the new enjoyment,
Increasing in numbers in hedonistic ardent.
Every ‘Q’ for a Question is frowned upon,
Either lied to its face or made a feeble pawn.
Rape from ‘R’ will trend from now on,
As real victims suffer, and it’s used in every con.
‘S’ for Sex will stay ever resolute,
Till desires in the groins rule logic absolute.
We are just at ‘T’ and I feel your pain,
Not really, Tall Stories come from the brain.
Understanding is from ‘U’ and there’s a play of words,
While sensibility rots, topples another house of cards.
Verity from ‘V’ has gone to take a nap,
Open up some graves, you might find the dead chap.
The World with ‘W’ has no value itself,
When mundanity is its core and worth on the shelf.
‘X’ leads to Xenophobia, that which is rampant,
No one tends to think, better is hatred blatant.
‘Y’ should stand for Yellow Journalism always,
Bearing testimony to violence worthy of praise.
‘Z’ for the poor Zygote that will face all the above,
Strive for something better, maybe even die for a real love.
