Travel Nepal Haiku - The Royal Palace..Kathmandu


Kathmandu Royal Palace
here and there
butchery spots

Kathmandu Royal Palace
amid our talk of royal butchers
the stuffed animals

large stuffed animals gawk at us
as we talk about butchery
Kathmandu Royal Palace

Kathmandu Royal Palace
butchered animals greet us in
the hallway

here the royal
butcher house
Kathmandu city centre

who did it? who did it?
who did it? rings in all our mind
no, no not the king's son!

we look at the son and sigh
'it could not have been done
for puppy love'.

here at the Kathmandu Royal Palace, the place where the king, queen and others who were butchered are marked for tourists. Huge stuffed animals such as a crocodile are used to decorate the hallway. We feel that even before the butchery of the royalties, this palace is not that a happy one as there are so many animals butchered to decorate it.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
