Lame Power

By Srishti Raturi


Not impressive? Not attractive?

It’s brutally nonaligned to your stature

It doesn’t  appeal to your senses?

‘cause the same never attracts.


So, what if superpowers would be lame?

They wouldn’t have lacked in all constructive ways

But the idealness still would have remained the same

Because the void cannot surpass the opaque.


The power to reveal and not to unveil

Lameness would have unlocked every case

The charismatic leader would be on common grounds

Adhering to the core, foregrounding the real drenched in pernicious.
