By Rajani Kanth

Oft, when Eating

Humble Pie

I resort to Question


Some live high

Whilst Others die:


To the Last –

And Answer came in

By and by

As Lions lord it

In Jungle law

We, too, be red

In tooth and claw

Justice, Fairness

Truth, and Right

Are but swindles

We must never




In lurid light,

Are both Present

and the Past

Nothing Changes

The Game, simply,


And, In a blink

Of the listless eye

Reverts to Primal


Doff all Myths

Old and New

heed not the

rants of the ruling few

cleave not to roads

that lead to Rome

instead, tilt to

the hearth and home

where Spirit

can rest, at last
