11.11.11


11.11.2011 and not 11.11.11(1111)

It was just hoax about eleven, eleven and eleven
The figure was odd and not even”even”
What was then so special to talk about?
Why was it creating flutter and fought?

It was thought of some brain product
Just floated from mind for others to act
Involve in figure magic with imagery show
To show the people that universe had few hours to go

Well it is not 11.11.1111 but 11.11.2011
It had nice matching if had in raw all the elevens
Funny calculation made about is figure of eight
In both the counting it stands eight and right
(11 11 1111=8, 11 11 2011=8)

Other than this equation there is no coincidence
It is just a hype created at once
People go after making it as special
Nothing comes as concrete reply or denial

Not a sun, moon is coming in single line
So it con be considered as holy or divine
Some people feed it with religious fervor
To claim it as gift from power as favor

Person on death bed may speak no lies
He is afraid of not inviting wrath as he dies
So if we fear a lot about our extinction
We must resolve and take pledge not to fuel the situation

Live for some cause and render humanity service
Make life little worthy with ordinary promises
That at least one hungry man will be delivered with food
This will not only satisfy noble soul and feel too good to

    The grammar and some spelling is a little confused. Don’t be afraid to draft and review your poems before posting to allow your ideas to be refined and developed. There is no rush and art should have the respect of some time to develop. However, the content is great, tackling a mix of complex ideas. (Report) Reply

    Clever. Got your point across and made it flow. Also gave you another aspect of a very one-sided situation (Report) Reply

    Yarbrough 2011.11.14 07: 10 I really liked the first three stanzas, I feel the poem would be better left as comedy, but that's just me. Reply (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
