The Beauty Of Shamelessness - Poem by Syed Ahmed Shah

Beauty of Shamelessness


I am not in good terms
With my neighbor …

We quarrel on and off
On host of issues…

But last evening
A blood curdling scream
Made me run to his house…

I had to dispose off a small snake with a stick…

‘Why do you have to shout like this for such a minor thing? ' I demanded
‘Who asked you to come? ' He said
"To hell I will, next time" I came back breathing fire

But I know
Every time he sees a snake
He would still scream for my help
And I would still go rushing with a stick…

We are so hopelessly shameless…
