More than thy
“More than thy”


You may be the king with lots of wealth
And we are the proletarian but
Do not try to set us beneath thy feet;
To hit.


Though you may rich in wealth
By the blessings of God almighty;
But will it be possible!
Could you...Read More

Be not complacent 'bout dire global warming

Despite brisk temperatures today lo

puff 'o air to flow

Autumn weather

The Witch Who Couldn't Fly
There was a witch who couldn't fly. 
She couldn't sit upon her broom 
like other witches in the sky. 
There was a witch who couldn't fly. 
She was so fat from thigh to thigh, 
her sweeper vanished in that gloom....Read More

Aye happy to be called  big Billy's sidekick

Short in stature,big of heart

On it she could squat all day long
Sitting on them she inspected the moist soil

Dying In A Bucket
A mere carrying never makes a mother.

A gynecologist
observes soft
feminine rhythms
on a monitor.

Currency conceals compassion.

Hospital sweeper
carries remnants
of a plastic love in
his black bucket.
His squint-eyes 
are conditioned. 
Pulses pause 	
unnoticed in the
bucket. Just two
hundred rupees
bury his conscience.
He seeks shelter in 
a dark...Read More

Premium Member Oh, March
Oh, March
you pompous windbag
howling in the hollows
of Winters fade.
Scattering Fall’s gold
across warmed mud,
billowing tree bound
plastic bag kites,
hoisting the weightless hawk.

Oh March
you city street sweeper
funneling debris
down tunneled alleys,
tearing at the edges
of flailing flags,
hastening the pace
of lethargy’s malaise.

Oh March
you docile lamb
caressing soft...Read More

You are my mind sweeper. 
He never calls me baby or honey ,
I'm proud to be his only.

The Autumn Leaves
The last leaf of the autumn trees,
Fell on the crusty path,
In a gentle way of the evening breeze,
Like nature shedding its wrath.

People come in couplets,
Walking all over them.
Saying it's perfect outlet,
To make their names same.

Little do they hear the cries,
While...Read More

Remember your Creator
A poor hired labourer,
Or a wealthy contractor;

A road sweeper,
Or a civil engineer;

A biscuits hawker,
Or a business mogul;

A hungry, unkempt and unknown beggar,
Or a well fed, finely turned out and renown president;

Reaching for bright, limitless heights and prospects,
Or groping for dark...Read More

Syringes in fence palings
condoms on park benches
street sweeper drinks whiskey

with grey suits

Untitled
When a poor exposed
His feeling through pen
The crucifix he shouldered
His stomach pain

To write a poem about how he feels
On how the sun touches his skin
On how he survived every arrow of the clouds

Friend
The sweeper was there in the club that day,
But I was too busy and could not stay,
He donated his time and gave us a smile,
Until he dropped one day while jogging a mile.
 
The red-nosed gentleman always said “Hi”,
Eager to...Read More
