Times Dangerous


In these times dangerous,

And volatile,

Artists get only smiles mocking,

And
Rogues, all the social respect,
Con-artistes are circulating a-plenty,

Getting incorporated

In the fast-paced commercial world

But cerebral

Questioning

Innovative

Subversive
Becketts

Are not

To be seen

On the red

Horizons any more.
