The royal, the regal versus the poet's realm

Of splendid thrones of gold
Of treasures manifold

Of jewelled caskets
Of lavish banquets

Of Sultans and Shahs
Of Emirs and rajas

Of kings and queens
Of rulers and emperors

Of sparkling crowns
or flowing gowns

Of their subservient stewards and obedient butlers
The times of minions pavilions and pages
Of stalwart squires and servile knaves

Of castles and palaces

Witchdoctors!

The poor child groaned
while his mother moaned
''Ah, he's possessed,
ah, he's been bewitched'',
she finally bemoaned.

To the witchdoctor she sped
and was back with murky potions
such yucky stinky lotions
those mythical concoctions

The woman obeyed the wily witchdoctor
Placed belief in that traditional healer
and the poor child still groaned
but his mama no longer moaned
After two days of treatment
and no lessening of predicament
she thought he needed
something more potent
When all it turned out to be

The Human Heart

O' heart, I wonder how you can store
so many different emotions of ours
in just thy four puny chambers
while pumping away the liquid of life

O' heart in you we discover love
but side by side you harbour hate
in you we find the emotion of happiness
but side by side you harbour rage!

When you cease to beat many plans you thwart
May God protect the young human heart

And while some O' heart you hold dear
some make you skip a beat in fear!

O' heart but we find in you as well
the bad bad emotion of jealousy
Such a potpourri of emotions in you dwell
Help filter out any wrong ones for me!

Scenery medley contrasts!

Mushrooms and meadows
Sunshine and shadows

Gentle ripples on the calm river
Foaming rapids in white water

The jungle echoes in the semi-darkness
while daylight creepy-crawlies clear the mess.

Peasants toiling and pheasants scratching
as I spy a cricket somersaulting

The cactus the desert's prickly femme-fatale
elsewhere a lone leaf floats in the canal

Prairie dogs go popping
while hares go hopping
and ladies go shopping

Swans have formed a V-line

Play It On Your Lips :)

Wear a smile all day, smile away the day
and watch the effect you pass around
It might just cheer up the not so gay
and happiness might as well abound.

And don't you look your best when you do smile?
No wonder you are asked to say 'cheese' for a photo
But the trick is to wear it all the while
'Smile without distinction', that be thy motto.

When someone creases their forehead into a frown
you curve your lips into a smile
Don't let their scowl get you down
then they'd be the one to look the clown
while you show off an enchanting style.

When people stare 'n' glare at you
Return their stares and glares with a grin smile
Keep smiling whether they boo or pooh pooh
they might just reset their mental file.

Fauna's lost and found!

To purses of leather
one lost its skin
One lost its feather
to hats and decors
Another lost its fur
to those mink coats
One lost its tooth
to ivory bangles gosh!

Many lost their lives
to heartless hunters
Not only are they
on animal property encroaching
They are selfishly and greedily
also poaching
Alas! Alas! Alas!
Woe to that cut throat
fine and fancy fur coat
They lost it all to ruthless
merciless, thoughtless poachers

The 2nd Eid- Baqrid

This day to celebrate the supreme sacrifice
of the ancient prophet Abraham
This day to ponder and reminisce
that divine substitution of Ismail for a ram!

This Quranic and biblical factual story
shall never diminish in its age-old glory

That superb reliance on and compliance with the will of God
eternally for man to learn from and applaud.

Upon his awesome trust in the unseen, let his kind marvel
and of submission, devotion to God bestow him a laurel

And now for the sake of mutual unity and festivity
first let all of humanity
release their doves of peace
and let them fly freely, unprovoked, unrestrained
with olive branches in their beaks

The Better Gems

What's better than gold?
A heart of gold and a golden rule
Thus donot over the mined thing drool.

What's better than pearls?
Any pearls of wisdom
grant the oyster some freedom

What's better than diamonds?
Supernovas that dazzle like them
So fret not if you cannot
afford the earthly
underground gem

What's better than rubies red?
Carmine roses and rosy lips
I do and maybe you too
already have them

What's better than emerald?

Charity Starters

Charity starts at home don't we say?
Be kind to kith and kin come what may.

A family's not only your safe haven
Tis pals, your very own roots
Water those shoots with love devoid of hate
so they bear you sweeter fruits.

Maybe you'd say that's not so easy
but perhaps that's coz you're just too busy

Or your clock just don't chime
for quality family time.

For if you can't make time for a letter or a hug
then let my poem give your conscience a gentle tug.

And if this may sound like a preachy homily
deserves much more mention and affection the family!

Suicide's Not A Way Out!

When life seems all hopeless
still don't yah loose all scope of hope
for there's this thing dangling in the air
Reach out for God's sturdy rope.

For how sure can you be that
death will take you to a better fate?
What if you are plunged into a plight much worse
where there's no turning back at any rate!

You too haven't been impeccable and above all blame
that you wish for a perfect rosy life
The excuses for suicide are usually so lame
Better enjoy your share even in strife.

Donot friend, plan to commit this act
just to invoke another's pity and regret
The pity and regret will come and go
besides, it soothes no decomposed
and a large slice of life will go waste.
