Notes: Like most poems this is a work in progress. I confess this poem and the previous; “The Owl and the Crow” were indirectly inspired by the poet Ghalib. I say indirectly, because I am most certain, to grasp the beauty and meaning of some of the eastern poets, once has to listen to one who knows them and talks of them, for it is he who shall put wings to their verse. When you sit and talk with one who understand and has a passion for these verses, they come to life in the present. This is also the great joy, of learning of others and seeing the joy of humanity that crosses all bounds and continents.

Silent Lies Silent lies Silent tries Silent deceptions upon the meek Blaming Yahudi or any others of different speak Whoever doesn’t subscribe to propaganda’s blubber The gardens of Babylon had both fools and gardeners False accusations False assumptions Defiling peace, a sad interruption Deception is the tool of the propaganda’s fool Silent lies, yet on and on do they try The gardens of Babylon had both fools and gardeners Hiding behind his many monikers and dark lit screens Many of us are crying cause one of us is lying Hate wrapped in well wishes Love wrapped in ancient vendettas Deception hiding in his own confessions The gardens of Babylon had both fools and gardeners While the sickness spreads upon her breast Silent ones, wandering along the poetic path Seeking brides with beauty to accept both cane and wrath Deception and lies all dancing in the rain Once bitten, most lovers know never to take that train The gardens of Babylon had both fools and gardeners Never praise the fool Never kill the gardener The ancients lost their wisdom Repeat not the tribulations of the Iraq The gardens of Babylon had both fools and gardeners Silent lies, truth cries Silent ghosts, phantoms dance Deception mixed in romance Fools mange the mirage of silent lies The gardens of Babylon had both fools and gardeners

Hello Arthur, A quite marvelous poem indeed here. You're right about the Eastern Poets. We have much that we can learn from them, in addition to the classical orientation with poets from the West. Excellent Work!! Best Wishes Always, Gary
