DEPARTURE OF A YOUNG FARMER
Pale skies moistened the earth,
the sticky ground in desperation glued to the boots
the home hurls javelins of souvenirs
stretched evening shadow trailed me to the station
surviving this flood, this ambush of tears.
Castrated acres exhaled stench of death
the sponsored effort by fat khadi pests
People in motion and in haunches, betrayed by the sickle,
cut and left to dry as hay!
few unlucky ones float above the ground on their own,
Banks showed largesse to the privileged inflated leeches
water on the globe is put on sale!
a dehydrated earth served on the plate
brimming with dust and rocks, even the trees are tanned.
Oh, many stood in the precipice waiting for a storm
disappointed dived back into the motherland's womb.
The problem was so great, I dragged myself from a home
Huddled inside this monstrous red snake on a rail
Hauling the laden promise of a beautiful friend.
Hundred of miles away and vomited into the city,
wearing a basic fashion and this tongue so crude!
standing anonymous and hushed at the many doors
This alien world with wild animals on big wheels
the wallet with two photographs filled a hunger
And finally sheltered by a flame, building concrete pine trees
with many windows reaching out to the stars
this devoted hand of a farmer is still good.
