Moghul Emperor - Poem by RAVIKIRAN ARAKKAL

A two hundred years ago,
There lived an emperor
Of the great heirarchy
Of the Great Moghuls
With riches unlimited,
Horses, elephants
Uncountable, a full
Fortress of gold, jewels,
A harem with a thousand
Beauties of royal heritage
In marriage and donated
He lived a life of ultimate
Luxury, with wine from counties
A far and near, courtesans
Unlimited witha mighty army,
He made the dames dance
Naked with lighted candles
In their secret places
And mating with the one
Who had the lit candle
For the longest time.
