Treasure Island

Indira Renganathan


Euphemism


He's a father-in law and a home-mutiny silencer
Sometimes henpecked and dud
Times and times pro-wife and pro-daughter-in-law
Killing splitter, splitting-killer

She's a mother-in- law tormented and tortured
Turned in revenge impatient and wild
Familial tigress, home-killer
Erroneous enactor dramatising laughter

He's a son, husband and a sweet knife
Patting wife in dark light
Chopping in day-white for her re-birth
Silent non-repaired inmate

She's a wife and a smiling grief
Patient on her final night
For her eleventh hour relief
Unwanted non-residential implement, insurgent..

Life has an immortal satan breaching morals

    very true satan seems immortal in every household....10
    regarding my poem 'a rise and fall of humanity'
    india got its freedom in a unique way...the humanity of the opposite side was provoked
    so that he would lay down his guns to sit and talk...we were not armed even then...a fear less trait then....humanity addressed humanity....today even with an equipped army...the leader addressing the nation stands behind bullet protection....fear addressing fear...even when gandhi fought a war like that world war was on....i agree this is the situation everywhere...why pin point india alone....india is one of the very few countries which acheived a freedom in the manner it did....it was a tribute to humanity
    after we seem to have reverted back to the beaten path of nationality...we represented more than a nation then....to day two of our PM's have lost their lives to extremist whom they themselves have encouraged initially...i am not saying anything new...the bombay incident spoke volumes which the whole world saw....may be i am not a patriot
    i have never been one...gandhiji is a person i adore and love....please read my

How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
