Treasure Island

Nikhil Parekh

(27/08/1977 / Dehradun, India)

on the gallows of

On the gallows of blisteringly everlasting patriotism;
hung the unflinchingly venerated; martyr,
On the gallows of disastrously unforgiving hell; hung
the mercilessly massacring and ruthlessly
cold-blooded; tyrant,
On the gallows of brutally delirious insanity; hung
the disdainfully dilapidated and reclusively shunting
On the gallows of perpetually glistening truth; hung
the blissfully iridescent and beautifully blessed;
harbinger of humanity,
On the gallows of disheveled dastardliness; hung the
viciously decrepit and salaciously invidious parasite,
On the gallows of eternally fructifying pricelessness;
hung the shadows of celestially invincible and
euphorically triumphant; simplicity,
On the gallows of ominously disappearing
non-existence; hung the indiscriminately pulverizing
and heartlessly victimizing; murderer,
On the gallows of flagrantly orphaned stink; hung the
mortuaries of sadistically torturous and debasingly
criminal; bigotry,
On the gallows of cadaverously sinister ignominy; hung
the graveyards of perniciously bizarre and lividly
maiming; retribution,
On the gallows of venomously besmirched treachery;
hung the vapid coffins of hideously vituperative and
fecklessly banal; laziness,
On the gallows of intransigently egregious abuse; hung
the ghost of criminally derogatory and atrociously
simpering; lies,
On the gallows of pathetically diminishing insult;
hung the baselessly abysmal skull of the worthlessly
deteriorating and horrifically manipulative;
On the gallows of severely asphyxiating accident; hung
the carcasses of ruggedly infidel and demonically
callous; carelessness,
On the gallows of unstoppably victimizing boredom;
hung the parsimoniously unsavory crevices of
penalizingly truculent and indefatigably iconoclastic;
On the gallows of infinitesimally two-pence
sordidness; hung the ant hole of maliciously
adulterated and preposterously decadent; chicanery,
On the gallows of continuously stabbing misery; hung
the dungeon of unsparingly molesting and heinously
beheading; crime,
On the gallows of lethally sinful banishment; hung the
thorn of obsoletely contumacious and pruriently
disillusioning; racialism,
On the gallows of stonily wastrel death; hung the
jinxed hood of jejunely jailing and haplessly
disorienting; atheism,
And on the gallows of gloriously fragrant immortality;
hung the silhouette of Omnipresently endowing and
divinely enamoring; love; love and only immortal love.

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
