 An instrument of war...

Bank of America,

sultans of currency,

With a voice ornamented in ogled tension

like vulnerable flesh queries warm obsession,
Do you mean to love me this way...

History-a Bundle of Lies
What is Today
Shall be History tomorrow
All that comes
Shall ultimately Go.

Who was born
When was born
Where was born
What he did
How he did
When did he do
Where did he do
All shall be recorded
In books of history

Historians some
Could be contemporary
And many shall write
Later on.

One Syllable
Is there anyone who knows me?
I am the secret that cannot be solved without living in it,
Even if there aren't many people who are unaware of me,
It is still hard to identify me.

Nightingles sung their songs in my language,
They fell...Read More

Eddy Snowden-2
Edward Snowden

When Edward Snowden* snowed in,
no one thought it a sin,
save the snooping sultans  who froze.
When on the run or cubby-holed, for friends, he had only  woes.

The royal the regal vs the poet's own realm
Of 
splendid 
thrones of 
gold
Of 
treasures 
manifold

Of Sultans 
and Shahs
Of Emirs 
and Rajahs

Of 
jewelled 
caskets
or lavish 
banquets

Of 
sparkling 
crowns
and 
flowing 
gowns

Of kings 
and queens
Rulers and 
emperors

Of their 
subservient 
stewards 
and 
obedient 
butlers
Or the 
servile 
knaves 
and 
stalwart 
squires

Of the

Humpty Dumpty
     
Sheiks and Sultans kingdom's revolt
Citizens ire and fervour a shocking jolt
Unleashing coffers, promising change they molt
While cleansing their streets with rifle and Colt

Western pots fizzle and stew
Chafing but swallowing the spicy brew
Heartburn follows; the potion they slowly chew

Insomnia,
Besets the darkness.
While the sultans of slumber caress my iris
To usher a sweet, but faint nightmare,
From pleasant dream to pleasant dreams.

Weeping Angels
Reality is seeping into my fantasy and,
It’s turning my once golden dreams into a dusk road,
Paved by sultans and kings filled with woe.
They smile as their silvery tongues,
Slithers on the edge of their hollowed promises

“Dare I say let the weeping...Read More

Sitting with the Gardeners
A blank canvas 
an empty stage

yearning for the water

who had trouble just saying hello,
he was so fearfully shy
and would quite frequently cry,
when consulted he always said "No!"
