Hurricane


(to be read before the wind turns cool and the sunlight mellow)


A Faustian pendulum a birthday gift to help us keep the prices down
Overjoyed oily housewives, oily party cadres, possessed dispossessed
Damn the goddamn damn the goddamn damn the goddamn damn
Who's mother bribing this year? Is the mother joking?

A wring of prophets spin the rape of minds the depths dark
Orphaned marshlands orphaned again faith skin party colors
Damn the goddamn damn the goddamn damn the goddamn damn
What is madam wearing, yaar? What madam says is final.

The people a buffalo august smog a broad indistinct line
Sunlit large orange swathes the beach the boulevard
Damn the goddamn damn the goddamn damn the goddamn damn
What's the mother driving this year? What's the mother smoking?

Durga Puja celebrates the victory of good over evil, and is symbolized by the Goddess. Do remember to check out Rajrupa's Durga Puja event at her blog Riot of Random.

  1. I like to see the fun and festivity around me though Dusshera for me is just another day.
