Pandora’s Box

Illustration by Harshita Bandodkar

Pandora’s box is open
And the -ism’s are flying about
Nationalism has bitten her quite badly
Her friend has been stung by Doubt.

The -ism’s are creating schisms
Between him and me and you
Is there any remedy for this?
What is the best thing to do?

Try and get stung by Kindness
And we may well be able to cope
Open the box again quickly
And let out poor, trapped, Hope.

You had me at ‘Pandora’s box is open
And the -ism’s are flying about’

Loved this poem, Sunder, reflects current times so well.
