Treasure Island

Soumita Sarkar Ray

(Kolkata)

You Bow Low


As I glide slyly spreading my charm
Attracting all furtive glances like a swarm
I strut through the garden, the park and farm
In delighting the others I see no harm
My roving whisky eyes can raise desire
Only to desert you hurt, to burn in fire
I gain that strength when I flirt
Thus crush your ego in mere dirt
I sway, I dance, I sing with ease
My affected airs potent to please
Thirsty hearts lined to share my smile
I do smile at every nook for a while
I break my limit and then go slow
Your advances leap to touch my glow
I feel important when you bow low
My order dictates and you follow
I start flying high and feel the power
When for a kiss you are ready to shower
All the treasure which you had tirelessly toiled
Even your praised reputation gets soiled
Ha! Descendants of Eve with a small brain
Who can play and ride to make you drain
This act is completely under my paws
Who says woman can’t change laws?

    No doubt God made Eve with a smaller brain
    But in quality He made no mistake
    As dumb macho males woo and faint
    And finds her true colours far too late......

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
