They box and label with expertise,
Years of experience come in handy,
Indifferent to aspect of the soul,
Physical appearance is the key.
Some cages are labelled ‘too fat’,
Some say ‘too dark’ with a dark grin,
Slightest deviation of God’s mould,
Meticulously stamped, discarded as sin.
Some victims withdraw from public sphere,
Some dread the mirror, for eternity,
Some drown in a sea of guilt and shame,
Shattered by upholders of vicious ills.
