infact you just got me thinking on the word destiny and its origin..."destination"

The year is now Two thousand and seven
It's easier far to stay alive
Just keep your mouth shut while the planes zoom and dive
Ten thousand miles over the ocean

Pound a Country to take its people

Back to Dark Ages, Siphon out their Oil

A decade ago the poor were

Skinny and the rich plump

Now all that is reversed

Food is cheaper mass marketed

Than ever before

And bad Junk food is cheapest of them all

So the Poor are obese and the rich fat cats

Now we mind our own business, and watch the TV
Complain about taxes, but pay anyway

In their dreams they stare at the family we dont love
All gutted and spattered with napalm, bombs

One fool talks abt some Puppy love here

Pork Vindaloo made in Gods own Country now
Lovers and Madmen mumbo gumbo

Lines that seem meaningless to the others

Am told Wine from Nashik, comes from Kerala pigs,
Due to the Common Market, Kerala suddenly found,
Itself a powerful exporter, of pork products - big,

As a result, piles of pig shit, by the mound,
Country small, & blessed with fertile, marshy land,
Unable to descend, pigshit began to rise,
In the form of ammonia clouds, by the band

In Gods own country,

Soon, with pig-acid rain, people began to criticize,
The folks, as well as neighboring lands,
Fortunately, a solution was found,
Mountains were not allowed, to go to Mohammed,
Instead, turned into small grey pellets, by the pound,
And sold to wine farmers,
To fertilize their vineyards, year round

Wud you lend a hand with yr poetry as well??

May the drops reach their destination and settle down in their shell and transform into a "PEARL"

Dear Vivek,
A thought-provoking poem, well composed.

I like the imagery lots...of a droplet chasing/following the other off a window pane, with green hills watching in a distance...

Nice. :)

Proma said...

Why trajectories driven by some tension ? why not venture more boldly and bungee jump into the yet undiscovered ? Your words speak of helplessness. not just restlessness.

Vivek said...


Tension and gravity drive drops down the pane (the scientist in me studies drops, and therein lay inspiration for the words and the poem).

Is it always possible to jump headlong into a relationship? It is so in novels and movies but is it so in real life?

For once bitten, twice shy, it is a predicament beyond measure:) But thats another story for another day, a poem says what that moment chooses to say.
