OCCUPANTS ON EARTH
Confusion wouldn’t be your portion.
Mystery of the future blinds humanity,
King owner of the throne
Who abuses it
Not minding tomorrow,
His hype name is
‘Enjoyment, that’s life’.
Mother insulting her offspring
She’s also malnourished,
Tomorrow comes in hast,
Child doesn’t make headway.
Mystery of the future blinds humanity
Sense of reasoning is deliberately
Thank God of mankind.
If a bell can keep vigil for
Its good for us to think, let’s think,
T.junction is a meeting point
Dangling beads from the waist
Of a beauty queen,
Broom, air plane for a kid.
The way I think
Woman is GOD.
