Thus, O Beloved, Thus

Your village will have wells Well-equipped water- supply My village connected to the town. I shall be employed And teaching poetry and plays In a college. China will leave claiming Ladakh, Issues of Arunachal and Lama, settled. Kashmir shall be again a kingly state, Chenab to Chin ,K2 and Pirpanchal; And India, Pak, Bejing be friends, Sure forever. Afghans will end all their wars And grow in their abandoned fields World famous apricots and grapes. East and west will day-night trade. Jews, Christians will understand Muslims And Muslims shall undoubt’ly forgive. West will ban free sex And work strict laws on homosex. Widows will freely approach married gentlemen, And their God- fearing wives will say Well! Korea and Iran will propose the UN And all will agree And together decide a day (Destroying Bombs Day) On the Nevada grounds And in the Mediterranean Sea. Even I and you shall unite, Our son will earn D.Lit. in Cambridge Daughter will set up a global business. Even my dearest Dad will one day die! Thus, O beloved, thus, Let’s fall not in any futile fun And wisely, turn to learn it early, What’s after all! The Absolute Truth.
