Humans Like Us

People should be treated
First as humans 
Before anything else.

I take you as you are
But first as human.

For we were first humans
Before we became all-what-not
That we have become today.

So I would be glad 
To be treated first 
As human before anything else.

As human I enter with my wife 
Into my room at night
And after our natural duties,
We gossip over many things.
We laugh about many funny things
That were said and done 
During the day by our neighbours 
And friends and all.

We mimic them funnily
When we are out of gossips,

She tells me to hush
While she places her ear
Quietly on the wall to hear 
What our neighbours were doing
And she removes it abruptly
Again in shock 
Not believing her ears.

Hush… Hush
She signals me to put my ear
To the wall.
When I did,
I heard my neighbours
Mimicking us; gossiping us.

So on a rainy Sunday
All dressed up in white, 
We are going to church.
And we greet you loudly
From across the road.
As if to show our 
White apparels to you.
Then a speeding automobile
From the blues splashes
Mud-water all over us.
Inside you laugh
In spite of your outward
“Sorry o sorry!”

And in the morning of the next day,
Like the humans we are,
We yet exchange warm greetings
The neighbours, you and us.
