Treasure Island

Nitheesh Babu

Once I Was Real

I was real…
And one day I started sleeping…
I went unconscious…
I woke up…

I realized I got robed…
I wasn’t original anymore…
Heart's replaced with a Chinese made…
Thoughts redirected to Google search…
A blue ‘f’ logo for my social life…
They left i-siri and took my wife…
I checked my valet, thank God, bills aren’t gone…
I was rich than ever but, the markets down…
Girls came searching, but erections no more…
I feel I’m alive but, oh lord! Wherefore…

Oh but, did I wake up?
Am I still unconscious?
Who took my real life?
Or is it still with me?
Am I still sleeping?
Oh dear myself, wake me up…
Be real!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
