A braver man than I once said,
He feared for my eternal soul!
Courage from my heart has fled,
As I see I'm growing old!

A wiser man might speculate,
That the aged are buffoons!
But stupid here might contemplate,
That the end is coming soon!

Eternal flames that lick my flesh,
Is the fairest price to pay?
Of course, redemption, could be on the cards,
If I pray and pray all day!

Stand up the man whose innocent,
And cast the first hard stone.
My god who is omnipotent,
Will strike him down at home!

An aging man is better off,
To plead insanity.
You never gave me any proof,
So I’ll get away Scot free!

    I like the ironic humor in your poetry. Your forth stanza the first three lines are great but last line appears to point out your own views more. Thanks for your (very strange but still precious for me) comments on my poem Glory of Nation. Best wishes and love Ravindra ........David Br

    Full of ironic humor ... very entertaining, and yet frightfully pressed upon the thoughts. My friend, you have a very special way of doing what well you do.
