2014


2014.

Have patience.
Do not jump my gun.
Dare you not proclaim victory,
Without my sanction.
Wait for my order.
You do as I please.
Me the fly in your ointment.
The Indian who never sleeps.
Hungry, naked, brutalised,
I am on the fence.
On guard,
Defenceless.
I do not war,
I bring the fear,
Of god in you.

Hardik Mahesh Vaidya.

    Well said, Hardik! Hope the election went the way of the good people of India.
    I like how the poem sounded almost military throughout, until you get to the last
    part where you say, 'I do not war, I bring the fear, of God in you'. That line totally
    levels the playing field of those trying to proclaim victory. Great poem! ! RoseAnn (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
