2014


2014.

Have patience.
Do not jump my gun.
Dare you not proclaim victory,
Without my sanction.
Wait for my order.
You do as I please.
Me the fly in your ointment.
The Indian who never sleeps.
Hungry, naked, brutalised,
I am on the fence.
On guard,
Defenceless.
I do not war,
I bring the fear,
Of god in you.

Hardik Mahesh Vaidya.

    Well said, Hardik! Hope the election went the way of the good people of India.
    I like how the poem sounded almost military throughout, until you get to the last
    part where you say, 'I do not war, I bring the fear, of God in you'. That line totally
    levels the playing field of those trying to proclaim victory. Great poem! ! RoseAnn (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
