Perspectives

The Pessimist
examined the bleeding wound
and predicted death.
The Optimist tried
to erase the pain
and spoke about
a healthy blood count.
The Feminist ranted
about other wounds…
ignored and forgotten.
The Socialist blamed it
on the mean Capitalists.
The Casteists
accused each other.
The Existentialist laughed
at its futility.
The Poet contemplated
on the intensities
of pain…
of the shades of Red.
