An Inaugural - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan

O be mercy on the toothless ones,
An inaugural gets viral, sneezing dephodellium
The ancestry snuffed stray dogs driven from caves,
A step forward, proving an imaginary connection -
Carved out of a decadent thought,
Who held himself holy, and exhaled opiates,
Countering the lame lambs, giving them bows,
And those who spoke, pseudo-intellectuals.

Barbarism will rule the sad little girls
And the turbaned old boys, to solve humans,
From an abject terror of custom and tradition?
Admixed with religiosity of those who have never,
Been the other end of the elongated stream
Bringing the bliss of ignorance, himself ignorant.

The journalist who has to yet learn finesse
And sell himself, like the showman on street,
An inaugural it was, and another's,
How happy that they still think their vision,
Blinded ethos, on the unfortunate ones
Who with cowardice do not take pains to question,
For it is heard that sooner than later,
This earth will be clean for the new inhabitants.
