Treasure Island

Thampi KEE

(1983-9-12 / kerala India)

Budha is laughing


You praise my strength,
my fun for the war, ...
the huge wound in
my head yet to heal....

You praise my strength
my son is my power
his muscle on his arm
burning for war

We crushed smiling Buddha
with version of one eye,
utterly without scent..
the eye simply for mind,

You raped my faith
and forced for purdha..
you raped my sister,
for the sake of your faith

you made this land
and famine was the end,
any more than gray old horse
we meet in the holy place

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
