A Package Of Love - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah
Do you have this old bald headed man
in the deep of your supple heart,
for to be your eternal partner?
Ha! Ha! If you run on the beach gently,
I won't chase you but hobble around a tree.
What aspect of me lured you dear?
Is it my wrinkled, spectacled face
or my packed savings bank account?
When your fantasies take wings,
I would lie down and fall in a little doze.
Your sneers and looks with kicks
are the same to me, the half blind man.
'Uncle', you called me first in your nice tone,
but sprinkled your smiles on my face later.
O, twinkle the stars and throw light on my face!
If you go to a five-star hotel,
I will follow you to eat and exhaust your purse.
But keep in mind, my pension is for my medications.
You don't wink your tempting eyes please
for my pace-maker fixed heart would lose its beats.
Let me tie the holy cord around your neck
and you take care of this haggard looking man.
A monkey and a donkey are wedded for bringing rains
and the media will fetch you global awards of worth.
I recall my halcyon days and feign to be hearty.
I live, live live beyond ninety
losing half of my weight to double the age.
So love, love, love me deep in your heart.
But my conscience is the worst foe
calling me a paedophile insultingly.
