Swaggers Song





Swagger’s  Song 

This Free Verse was prepared by me on experimental basis to serve as a rustic Song. The free verse is yet to take the shape of a Song with Music and proper Singing. 

Placed on Poetry Soup for an evaluation by my PS Music loving friends.

Style inspiration from Poet Destroyer- Thank you for your silent inspiration dear friend PD.
Ravindra


Swagger’s  Song 

Hey Look 
You arrogant lady
Don’t move like a Cat
On my way.

I know 
How to bell a Cat
When she is crazy 
For a walk and talk
Like a clever politician.

Don't play a trick 
With me
By blinking your eyes
Dear lady
I know you are hungry
Like a tigress,
And would leave 
Nothing for me 
If I offer you 
Something to eat.

Still,  you want to keep me 
In a  world of illusions
Till the next prey falls
For you
In the season.

You are doing all this
So that 
I may not
Judge your moves
And intensions
And you may make
Your joyous attack
On my ways 
Whenever I move
To feel the 
Fresh air of the season.

But remember  
Hey 
You arrogant lady
Don’t move like a Cat
On my way.

I know 
How to bell a Cat
When she is crazy 
For a walk and talk
Like a claver politician. 

I know you are not
In your senses 
You have drained
The whole bottle 
Down your throat
Dear lady

And in a senseless 
State of drunkenness
You want to 
Walk and Talk 
Like a politician.

Don't play a trick 
With me
By blinking your eyes
Dear lady
I know you are hungry
Like a tigress
And would leave 
Nothing for me 
If I offer my food 
To you.

Still,  you want to keep me 
In a  world of illusions
Till the next prey falls
For you
In the season.

You are doing all this
So that 
I may not
Know your moves
And intensions
And you may make
Your joyous attack
On my ways 
Whenever I move
To feel the 
Fresh air of the season.

But remember  
Hey 
You arrogant lady
Don’t move like a Cat
On my way
I know 
How to bell a Cat
When she is crazy 
For a walk and talk
Like a claver politician. 

I know you are not
In your senses 
You have drained
The whole bottle 
Down your throat

And you are 
In a senseless 
Stage of drunkenness
Still you want to 
Walk and Talk 
Like a politician

Hey 
Look you arrogant lady
Don’t move like a Cat
On my way

I know 
How to bell a Cat
When she is crazy 
For a walk and talk
Like a claver politician

Don't play a trick 
With me,
By blinking your eyes
Dear lady
I know you are
Behaving 
Like a seasoned actor

But I also know 
That
You are completely drunk
And can’t take
Any meaningful decision.

I know 
How to bell a Cat
Dear lady
When she is crazy 
For a walk and talk
Like a claver politician.

    This is a very delightful and entertaining poem/song to read my very dear friend, Ravindra! I'm so eager to hear you again singing your compositions. I'll go there soon. I'm very sorry for coming only now because of my workloads at school. I'm not done yet w/ all my assignments esp. the research study assigned to me in relation to my Math Subj :)) but thanks God, I'm given 4 days break starting tom. TYTYSM for sharing your precious gems & for liking my poems. Love and biggest hugs, Leonora

    Ravindra, I like the poem very much. Not only do I find the poem entertaining. I find the poem, exciting and fun to read. It's mostly different from all the poems you have on this site. Which makes it one of your coolest and most original poem. I never belled a cat. Clever, clever, my friend. a perfect 7 free verse. My newest favorite poem of the year... Luv LINDA

    I don't really know anything about swagger songs, but this does have the quality of song lyrics the way the main parts keep repeating. And it has some SWAG as well!! Very different kind of poem from you, my friend, and entertaining

    This is an experimental Song placed here to find out if my Poetry Soup friends find it good enough to meet the requirements of a Swagger's Song. I shall be highly thankful to PS friends for their comments / suggestions if any on this new type of Song lines. Love and best wishes ....Ravindra K Kapoor
