Who will clean up the wastes that has piled up as ugly and mythical thoughts in our society? I term irrational thoughts as garbage and we need to be garbage collector to dispose them off. Leaders like, Karl Marx, Che Guerra, Periyar EVR have fought a battle against such evils and we need many of them.

Metaphor: The Garbage Collector

A poem on the evil thoughts that are dumped in this society. We can do our part by being rational and logical.

Every individual dumps into his society,
The garbage of his opinions and sentiments.

They accumulate in the communities,
As a decomposing waste.

They spread the disease of ignorance,
Impairing integrity and the individuals’ taste.

We need some garbage collectors,
Who can scavenge on the rubbish,

The society needs some idea selectors,
To make come true our holy wish.
