when i confessed 'i am human'
'who is not,' she countered
why not try to curb your faults?
wondered what good was my confession
but knowing where it came from
said i, appreciate and thanks
(did i change my ways afterwards
no, but it was nice to know she cared)
when will this journey end?
you don't want to know dear
life is one big journey
and when this journey ends
we stand to lie still
you mean we lie to stand still
pass me the paper, please
where can one find peace?
round the corner from prosperity
prosperity is peace's neighbor?
no, there is an empty plot of land
between them- with barbed fences
barbed wire pricks?
guarded by men with flowing beards
carrying a rectangular object wrapped in silk
a box containing a dead book?
maybe a book or a manual on dance rituals?
nobody can dance with pricked toes
yes, the beard tends to get in the way of smooching
perhaps the empty plot of land is a cemetery
to bury joy and happiness?
peace and prosperity go with happiness
- if they go happiness goes
happiness is polygamous
i didn't know she was a mormon. it figures
mormons even allow sisters to share a man
no wonder they are so grim
and happy simultaneously
grimaces are disguised smiles
are they ordained philanderers or just natural
at letting the animals instincts get the better?
even animals shy away from pain
animals have no conscience
they cannot think, they react
i once saw a fish cry profusely
it wasn't just the polluted waters in its eye?
the fish filled the bowl with tears so she can survive
self preservation is also only a reaction
ah self defense - like that lal fellow's burka?
in college this girl had a fascinating smile
those who succumbed to her
were called collateral damage
did she use depleted uranium in her tooth-fillings?
don't believe so - she victimised with cluster-smiles
how do you know
she wore a yellow cut-daisy print dress?
with stars and stripes?
you DO know her! do you know her whereabouts?
she smiles at me at the cemetery
did she find the lean tall bearded fellow
she loved? she told me she will go
to the end of the earth to find her man
the earth is round, there is no end
for someone who doesn't want to be found
she was weak in logic and geography
life with her would have been sheer boredom
excitement is bad for your heart
and the wallet
yeah, one above the waist and the other below
