Treasure Island

Naveed Akram

(15 December 1973 / London, England)

Swimming Reptile

Swim fast brave reptile, swimming is easy
When the rivers mock your jeering ways,
Crocodiles shall stay with the truth,
When others just hurt and relive their lives,
Formally and informally in peace.

Then let the snapping of your jaws
Remind us of hate and love also,
Like lists of selfish conspiracy,
Fuming partners of marriage are alike
In this tragedy called reptilian careers.

My snapping is a gist too faster than more,
Looting the bodies with slicing is finer
Than the dim news of negativity and its
Whole land of ache and fuming suffering
Inside you, internally you.

How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
