Pot-bellies

Sight catchers and smile bringers :
Painted on them tiger pictures
For ‘tiger dance’ at Trichur :only use I know.

A barrel full a day drink and eat
And freely take it, 
If not naturally blessed.

Go wherever,
Precede ever :
Propel as though with an oar.

Belts or lotions applied on applied,
Yet not replied :
Advertisement-prone always.

Bulging, joggling,
Wiggling, waggling……………
Pot-bellies are pot-bellies.


( Tiger pictures are painted on hundreds of pot-bellies, and these people dance with drum 
beats accompanied on fourth day of Onam festival every year at Trichur, Kerala)

    Awesome write, Fabias! Probably deserves a higher placement, but as hard as I try not to be, I'm still a product of my culture and probably didn't catch all the humor.. please write on! ~N

    I wish that I could vivify my comments to you and to all better. But I end up babbling and making no sense. So, I will leave you a message today letting you know I did read your poetry and I enjoyed it. I love reading poetry and the poets here are so talented. Have a wonderful day Fabiyas. Love, Carol
