Pop King Michel Jackson Came Alive - Dual-Rvierse-Etheree - Poem by Harindhar Reddy
(Adventure with Devices: Anti-climax & Climax.....)
Yabba dabba doo! Samba drums, rondo
Rounds, rondel rhymes of sonata as
Shakira discoed Roboisa
For French Picasso frescoed -
Sensei - A cat to rats,
Lion to deers, life to
Good, death to bad,
Chum to you,
Hop-hoops with moon walks
While Brahma creates Bahai -
A Bric-brac, dotty crack, taught
n00bs,180 jimdandies, tied to no
Field, drizzle-mizzled Gita - won hearts
Tippy with smiles in the age plastic - Zazz!
Loony preppies, Zany zombies and famed
Varros - You're born wits, Palsy-walsy
Wiz-kits, smiling with clocking in
The sun - if I got to grade,
You'd get numero uno,
Whirr! Alpha and
Swami's speech blurred,
Hawking's brain erred -
Sun's Glamour tattered,
As sky thunder-showered in
Me. Hara-kiri, end came like
Tsunami - mind all joys we shared with
Tears in eyes we depart, sayonara.
(Dedicated to Heather Burns as a token of Friendship)
