Nectar for venom

By: anita sharma

our babies
 since their toddler days
are constantly fed  on a diet of bitter,ugly prejudices
in the form of fairy tales and nursery rhymes
Cindrella had to suffer because of her step mom
drilled in the tender mind all step moms are cruel

  The irony 
we tell them to be strong
fed on the stories of dainty,hapless damsels and prince in shining armour
Be kind and emphatic
 after enjoying the plights and miseries 
of the humpty dumpty and Jack n Jill in nursery rhyme
Waiting for them to spread the nectar 
despite being on a regular diet of venom.
