Keeper

decades I have been
things I have seen
future kings’ obscene
green politicians preen
scientists’ bane
philosophers in vain
entertainers bore
academics impure
viscounts stutter
barons in gutter
princesses flutter
then slip on butter
poor’s screams
education a dream
nothing it seems
stops rich being fed
education in med
philosophy, art
pompous fart
why it is so
poor kids like me
grow up in pens
guarding dirty dens
cleaning filthy acts
dirty secrets, facts
protecting wealth
wasting youth, health
so princes live
in dorms above
my spent age
for a simple badge
that I served here
retired and die
an enormous lie

bathe we shall

water cleanses birth
readies purifies death
cutting with a lathe
gods came to bathe
one by one,
blue skies, sun
Sol, Orcus, Liber
Janus, Jupiter, Saturn
Genius, Mercury, Apollo,
Neptune, Mars, Vulcan,
Luna, Ceres, Tellus,
Minerva, Diana, Venus
prayed in nature’s girth
in maddening maddening earth

Magical moment

I
always try
many new things
this one is tough
pushes you, across the rough
catapults you, into deep dark heavens
Wizardry is required, to break the spell
Once it is broken and you have awoken
Life transcends, broken bends, magic has arrived, make amends

When shiny things lose lustre

Born with a
diamond crusted
platinum adorned,
silver spoon

Raised by virtuosos,
masters of fame
Tricks of the trade
by best in the game

Presents always
glitter and gold
all shiny new
Nothing ever old

Life has been kind,
too kind always
Nights been generous
Sunny all days

One fine day
age arrives
energy evaporates
body survives

all limbs injured
every bone hurts
used to be dames
now death flirts

presents still shiny
chests full of gold
all lose lustre
when we feel old

Perception

Innocence remains
The face is the same
Beauty hasn’t faded
It’s your eyes
Your harsh reality lens
And what you sense
Vision is jaded

History

Bulldozers
come in
making way for
new construction
Restrictions
are in place
to move around
the space
Instructions
they leave
for residents
new denizens
to keep
Destruction
will be after
few years of
construction
Construction
Restrictions
Instructions
Destruction
Repeat and
repeat
Humankind
Play games
Until the day of
Resurrection

Bath and Stonehenge

If you are coming to England then do visit to the city of Bath is a must. Always avoid the big motorway to get there and enjoy the winding country road. Suggested route is to travel to Stonehenge from London and then travel to Bath from Stonehenge. I warn you, however, that there is not a lot to see in Stonehenge unless you like clouds, fields, cows and sheep, or like me interested in taking their photographs.

Long-winded drivel

Let’s discuss this
Let’s discuss that

Doesn’t matter what
Doesn’t matter who
Colours will do
Green or blue

Ocean waters
Sons, daughters
Smiles, laughter
Plenty crying after

Walk and runs
Joys and funs
Words just flow
Ideas grow

Philosophy
Geography
Anatomy
Taxonomy

Conquests, cures
Pains endured
Slow…down
More and more
Hit the floor

Listen to the hum
Mother Earth glum
Could ignore
Talk some more
Finance, politics
Don’t be a bore

How about ants living,
Gorillas screaming
Purpose of living
Reasons for dying
Riches, diamonds
Life unsatisfying

Inviting, biting
Infinite fighting
Cause unknown
Bodies thrown
Souls blown

Inhuman misery
Factories, fisheries
Ships and planes
Expanses, plains

Roof of the world
Beautiful birds
Beaches and peaches
Eels and leeches
Jail breaches

Injuries, hurts
Heart wrenching, flirts
Indeed…about that,
Stop staring that skirt
Stop calling me a bird
You are such dirt

Why going so low
Flying solo
Let me hold that hand
Understand

Humanity, insanity
Divinity, destiny,
Joys of being, litany

a samurai sword,
High tea can’t afford
Unstoppable buying
nowhere to hoard

Walk and stand
Invisible hand
Conspiracies true
my love for you

Go on and on
Till it is dawn
A new day again
discussion began
