Even After Life's lustre Is Lost. Poem by Nabakishore Dash

Even After Life's lustre Is Lost.

Rating: 5.0


Silver in hairs,
scalp bald,
Drooping ears
With hearing aid.
Four eyes
night blindness,
Lessened vision,
stingy white mucus.
Some teeth have left sockets,
some have gaps between,
wretched dentition
no white shine.
Incomplete mastication,
painful deglutition.
Slow digestion,
regular constipation.
Smelly fart
squeaks of clarinet.
Pacemaker heart,
hypertension,
no cure,
regular medication.
Osteo-arthritis,
joint pain,
Urine dribbles,
involuntary urination.
Stones in kidneys
Prostate hyperplasia,
Frequent diarrhoea
unregulated nocturia.
Slip disc backbone
shoulders frozen
Physio-therapy,
Doctor's prescription.
Decreased immunity
prone to diseases,
afraid of bacteria
fungi and viruses.
Saggy bosoms
weak muscles,
lack of strength
no endurance.
Wrinkles clear
on body surface,
beauty lost
insomnia curses.
Today nephrologist,
tomorrow neurologist,
then psychiatrist,
scheduled frequent visits.
So many stresses
still man wishes
to live more
what is the trigger?
Readies for surgery,
homotransplantation,
even xenotransplantation
no hesitation.
What is there
in this globe?
Entices us,
induces hope.
