Poetry in an Urdu Nutshell

Garage       
stacked high
scribbled stenos of
an automatic act
of little understanding or thought-------------
{tuhituhi}

visceral finality       
zero return
zero reward
and then there's
a learning disability hindering the reading-------------
{panui}

writing       
is taking a dump, 
except after wiping, I tend to take a peek
this creative act ill affords a 2nd glance
a good day and bet the writing stinks... boring
jail or hospital equals readers galore 
"TELL ME MORE!"
could correlate with occupancy rates
what a sorry excuse of a poet I am 
damn if that ain't sayin' much.-----------
{paru}

~editor's note: Poetry Soup would not let the beautiful Urdu script be seen, so I substituted Maori~ :(
