yeh khuda hay na bhagwan m'ra

before foxa2* that furtive
fleeing, fleeting exchange
of the sperm-ovum owners
and an startled child grows

a pilot's target practice,
cambodia, chechenya
darfur, vietnam, iraq,
afghanistan and new york
famines, droughts, avian 'flu
legionnaire's disease, west nile
hepatitis, hiv aids
innocent civilians caught
in the vicious cross fire
noah tsunamis, perhaps
a few chromosome misfits
like trisomy 21**]

the litany mushroom grows
amidst champagne festivities
in a world that is not round

ghalat samajhna mut
mujh ko dost, yeh Khuda
hay na Bhagwaan na God
tumhara, m'ra, kisi ka

it is easy to invoke god
GWB's or OBL's?
the palestinian Allah
or the israelite Yahweh
our bed, our quarters, our mess
our bhagwaan, eeshwur, aur khuda
how can we outsource with such ease
our so revered creations?

** trisomy 21
