Treasure Island

Dr Hitesh Sheth

(Birth Place: Earth)

And the Ocean Created a Man


When the whims to ‘feel', swam in ocean's streams
An amoeba sprang from it, just to roll and dream.

When a wish to swim, surfed on his azure heart
His womb gorged out, fishes, reptiles and sharks.

When a fancy to fly, troubled his deep abyss
The birds flew from it, just to circle the sky in bliss.

When, masochism flashed in his greenish eyes
And emotions' tsunami bubbled in the waves;
His heart yearned to be exploited and to be lied
And men arose from it, just to punish the slave.

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
