Competition and its perils: A non-poem
Competition makes

 two or more -

fight for gains

gain of prestige

gain of fame

gain of award

gain of trophy

gain of control

gain of resources

gain of status

gain of comforts

gain of pleasures

by hook or crook


Competition is a clever ploy

of power-drunks

of market forces

of hoodwinkers

of  devils

of  psychopaths

to make people rivals

to go for a kill

to enforce jungle law

to divide and rule

to condition

to create irrationals

to create the value-less

through a race

of achieving

an unshared goal.


Competition is a proxy war

causing injuries of all kinds

physical injuries

psychological injuries

social injuries

spiritual injuries

environmental injuries


Competition breeds all kinds of ills

it breeds inequities

its breeds disparities

it breeds disunity

it breeds strife

it breeds sufferings

it breeds lower instinct slavery

it breeds marginalization

Above all,
          it breed end-less desires

it breeds the devil within


Lets go

 for cooperation

for mutual caring

for equitable sharing

for compassion


Lets be humane!

Lets be a web of relationships!

Lets go for interdependence!

Lets go for co-existence!
