The Significance Of Image

Monuments are just monuments.
And a defacing of them,
When and wherever it happens...
They can be cleaned to be restored again.
With a glistening done to add more gleem.
However...
It is humanity in dire need,
Of cleansing and restoration.
A humanity sinking in desperation.

Although as witnessed as the expense of values,
Continue to go misspent...
Priorities as priorities go to be 'prioritized',
That which is given the obvious attention...
Is that which is cleansed,
To keep minds fixed to a glorious past...
With a worshipping to romanticize it.
To maintain the significance of image.
As a reality as it is existing everyday goes dismissed.
