Where are your gods now (a tale)

An evil emperor of foreign lands
one day docked on calmer waters
Scorched the earth destroyed greens
Butchered animals, enslaved people

Then put them under his boots and screamed
Tell me where are your gods now
One child had the courage
No fear in those deep black eyes

Looked at him and simply said
If you keep doing this, you will be dead
Emperor got angry took boy to task
Got his sword and tell him to ask

For forgiveness to his mighty sin
Child was fearless, replied with a grin
If you can’t make me do what I am told
Think how much power you really hold

Humanity is not here because gods made it so
Fortitude, courage, desire to grow
These same people, you pillage and ruin
If had a good heart their souls you can win

Power you crave is nothing more than a dream
The day you are weak, you will die in screams
Adopt humanity and live amongst us
You will be remembered, immortality thus

Quite unbelievable, emperor took his advice
Released all people, gave them back their lands
Begged forgiveness, for his torture and his vice

If a child’s fortitude, can get a nation through
What are you waiting for,
Go for your dream, make it true!

Bleeding red day

what should we box
wasted sweets in giant socks
uncountable gold, silver coins
shiny colourless rocks

billions saved from wasting lights
pieces of junk causing unthinkable fights
money spared of expensive hangings
unwanted gifts, lingerie, leggings

turkeys, sprouts all food wasted,
wine, liqueur, those drinks never tasted
having more and more, cleaning entire stores
of those things we’ve bought, unwittingly sought

a day of reckoning what could have been
a generous giving yesterday should have been
humanity matters possessions certainly not
what a wonderful bleary weak afterthought!

Universally applicable to second days of Eid, Diwali, Christmas and all other global retail festivals, so no discrimination in collective criticism…I wish I could act on this thought but I don’t so certainly don’t practice what I preach…

Existence

Happiness could do us a favour
Instead it burns in flames
Whatever we have done to ourselves
Emotions stare, hide in shame
Pride look at us in disdain
There is no one else to blame
A simple smile is enough of a proof
Existence we can claim
But don’t. Torture is required
Assassinations, murder is required
Screams, nightmares,
Obscene materialistic
Hallucinations are required
When will we learn!20140529-090530 am-32730165.jpg

Greetings

I am nearly dearly here
Another beautiful day
Another amazing morn
Sapiens will wake up
New ideas will be born
Trees, flowers, orchids
Gardens will be adorned
Just for a moment
When you have one
Think life without me
Tell me what you see
winter, spring, summer or fall
morning run or evening ball,
flower beds, trees so tall,
bird tweets and cockerel call,
Nothing?…you say nothing at all

Funeral of the last butterfly

I was invited
to the funeral
of the last butterfly
All the birds were there
Insects made a wreath
Queen bee sung a melancholy
Grief too great to bear
Colours already left
Now the last butterfly gone
Everyone felt so lonely
Earthlings were alone
Far away in the sky
a thunder cloud
lightning strike,
a Phoenix flew in
Tears in its eyes,
sprayed on butterfly wings
Butterfly come to life
In all our hearts
Light of her soul
removed despair
Humanity wake up
When would you care
Planet is for all
We have to share
Might won’t work
win if we dare
Extinction of plants
Insects, animals all admire
Greenery in gardens
Fields and shire
Everything could go
If we don’t spare
Consume less,
Don’t scare
Nature, heavens
Water, our own air
Wind may blow
So does rain
Last butterfly
may flutter again
I wish, hope and pray

Dangle

Work, work, work
Carriage with cages
Dangling along for wages
A hard day ahead
I work till I am dead
Still that is not enough
