P.K. Joy

My Memorial

My memorial is being built
With public fund from the Budget.
Our cultural minister’s thought
Is noble, no? If not, what?

My contributions have been listed
And on the minister’s notice board pasted.
It justifies why my name be perpetuated,
And with Socrates I have been bracketed!

Such eulogy was perhaps needed
For getting the project fund sanctioned
Great writer’s memorial is surely wanted

Widows’ wails and orphans’ cries

My Claim To Honour!

I’d been thinking
To be a very great man,
My attribute being poetry,
And my poems highly rated.
I had genuinely believed
That poetry is great gift,
Poet is a superman
And he was venerated.

I had discontentment
That I didn’t get the credit
Which I truly deserved
For my superior poetry.
Poets much junior
And close to political bosses
Got awards and honours.
For, they wrote base flattery.

So, when I died I wrote
An elegy on myself,
