Benevolent Arguments



Benevolent arguments-

delivered by foretelling tongues

ought to be placed on heart and soul

yet these are rewarded a prompt rejection

by even the cavities of the new ears,

as these don’t hold water

to the eyes just opened

in a fresh morning

brought about by an innovative sunshine

to witness one another

as shameless and careless

holding hammers in their green hands

to grind the white feelings

of the old hearts.


‘’Mind your own business’’

the young sound wave pierces

the old tongues-

habituated to have a finger

in their pie

whether fresh or rotten for more purification,

but holding their heads high,

the fresh hearts hold their pie

and have the cheek to show

the burnt eyes

a white pigeon nesting

in the gap existing

between the new

and the old hearts

termed and nurtured of late

as the generation gap

making many brimful hearts

absolutely vacant.






A Good Man and His Dormant Imps



A good man’s sound slumber

allows as usual

some of his dormant imps-

quite opportunists and devastating,

to wake up and try

to climb the stairs

leading to his luminous roof-a-para-paradise,

he composed and collocated with great care

arranging a remix

of the feathery songs

and colorful fragrances,

with a devilish purpose

of trampling the soft goodness

of the good man down,

forgetting his sensitive sub-consciousness

resulting in a one sided win

of the good over the bad

when the climbing imps are


pulled down

and sent back

to their dark den

by the ever wakeful good man

assuming still more

to love and be loved.
