I Want To Write Poems Like Hen Laying Eggs, But... - Poem by M.D Dinesh Nair


I too want to write poems like a hen around a home
That lays a new shapely egg every day for her human friends
And I want all my new poems to be hatched for a while.

I too want to write and write poems of all seasons
And I want to make them new chicks so cute.
But I see a row of kites flying and a few serpents snailing
And my eggs beg me not to be laid so often!

The feathers of the hen in me begin to shed
And my slender limbs begin to shake now and then.
But my old chicks will one day grow and lay their own eggs.

I too want to hatch a few hundred eggs for once
And then my chicks will all be born of them
As my meat will be roasted by some one, somewhere!
