The Elephant-God - Poem by Jagannath rao Adukuri
Before the onset of winter
Our dear elephant-God arrived
The beginningless God presided
Over every worldly beginning
Rising from the mud-peelings
Of our own Magnificent Mother
He laughed at the annoying
Asymmetry of the imperfect world
The moon mocked at his belly
That rocked with food and laughter.
The crowds cheered their clay-God
Painted in kitschy acrylic colors
And national pride was restored
Amidst cacophonous film music.
