LOOK

LookLook hard and seeThe fruit of your treatment of your servants…are the foods which will feed the growth of your children…their children…and their children’s children IILookLook well and noteThe heart you hold for your enemiesIs the same heart which will greet your children…in their travels through enemy landsThere is an alchemy of karma…which stirs the […]

WHO AND WHEN

Fire the furry of a great soldierForce out his anger like a teaseCarve his temper like a skilled carverAnd he will uproot fearlessness…to plant success on his battlefield…to keep you safeOr uproot patience to defy decency to murder youLearn the different languages of bodies IIIf you fire up the anger of your gardenerAnd force him […]

A FAILED GENERATION

Arms do what they are commanded to doShooting even when turned to selfIf a man thinks otherwiseThen a shame is his thinking cup IbAs eyes of our nations…swim in muddy pools of corruptionAnd legs turn foolish fins beneathAs hands of our nations…point blindly at felt problemsAnd hearts lie on meshes of need…being roasted by the […]

POOR PLANNING

IaI will wrap you…yes, you leadersIn this parcel as LandAnd respectfully tell a satiric tale…hoping the mirrors of reflection…show you to youTo help right a path going wrongSo regrets can live in books…without using us as it’s guinea pigs IbOnce upon a timeRain was the best friend of landThey dined togetherAnd did everything together IILand […]

THE KING AND THE SAGE

Once,A king saddled with many a complaining elders…of his courtVisited a sage at the feet of dawnIn order to fix his court into calmAnd satisfy his people with need IIHe complained of the terrifying nightmares…of his cousin pushing a dagger into his heartAnd blamed his supporters…for pushing him into the royal limelight…whose dark parts host […]

FASCINATING TWISTS

Sometimes the story of a King excites not a kingdom…like that of the village drunkBecause he sits where the sun shines most…and sees not many below IIThe village drunk may be dirtyBut privy to minds and hearts…from all cornersAnd may even know of the cocroaches…which hide in gutters…their postures and fears IIIThat same village drunk […]

DEFEATED SUNS

Many lessons are born each day Making learning a requirement for wise minds None fails to notice …that defeated suns get no reverence …from owners of wet clothes They’d choose the heat of fire No matter the gifts defeated suns shower II They can light They can shine They can lead to pots of gold […]

GIVEN POWER

Power given is to be shared Power given is to be faired Power given is to be wired and lighted to act electricity for all Power given is not like power taken Power given is to be organized Assume super hero wings …and you’ll crash A reality parcelled in facts II Leading needs patience …with […]

LISTEN

Listen! Listen to the crickets …crying clones for better tones For they are the signs of continuity II Listen! Listen to the frogs …croaking chaos in our sleep …even if higher percentage spells hoax For they are the canes …which shape our sanes …in right care lanes III Listen! Listen to the horses …for they […]

WHEN HISTORY GNAWS

We remember the claws of yesterday After feeling the smooching of palms today A new dawn easily sheds its night And falls into nothingness If it records no history And acts like a boring copycat Yes, believe it or not History has teeth which bite through memories II Whichever crown graces your head On the […]

WHAT WILL YOU DO?

If you knew the future of all living humans Their happiness and sadness Their hurts and pains Their failures and successes From day to day Until they join the ghost union What will you do?   If you knew exactly when the world will end The disasters and turmoil Frantic efforts of ‘inhabitors’ and ‘reliers’ […]
