Monuments by Sanjeev Sethi

When profusion of public contretemps
are on parade, nonstop visuals
of salutations to sarcophagi vex.
Whilom should be skylike, just there,
wonder at its vastness and to winnow.
When caterpillars of yore corrode
fouettes of future,
time to be conscious
of the fisc
and its rationing.
To pill the present,
not cajole those in kingdom come.
