Values and beliefs
of culture and humanity
shapes morality.

What constitues
Universal moral laws?
Who defines them?

Amidst right and wrong
the morals are questioned 
of the weak by the strong

Voices silenced
by coercion, hegemony and
dictated morals

A man who sleeps under the tree

Sullied, barechested, barefeet
In the shade across the street
wuthering heatwaves, nah! they wont make him sick
as he sleeps peacefully on the pillow of a fly ash brick

People whine of heat as they pass him by
temperature reads 47 ,afternoons sultry and dry
people they pass him by, people unconcerned
he takes his nap, a nap that he earned.

Sun breathing fire, he breathes tranquility
peace and content,earned from drudgery
with hardships all around, what dreams can he see?
when he sleeps peacefully under a tree.

A complex of companies across the road
with airconditioned ambience of stress and workload
combined with montonous banality.
where an insomniac boss
often berates his employees.
