that makes more sense than the world,
maybe if some changes are made.
------


just put them together,
those odd strange figures.

will dipping them in paint,
change their colors ?

if we look differently,
will their shapes change?

Just put them together,
Those odd strange figures.

turn them around,
reflect them in a mirror,
add what you want,
will they ever differ ?

dip them in gravy,
mix some in salsa,
add a pinch of salt and some sugar.
will they ever differ ?

just put them together,
those odd strange figures.

stretch them with pliars,
cut some into halves,
scrpe some with sandpaper.
throw some mud over them,
decorate some with flowers,
clean and polish the others.
will they ever differ ?

just put them together,
those odd strange figures

....

gather them randomly,
put them in a blender,
they'll change alright,
maybe even together,
Maybe for the better.
it's what i think.

what do you ? ..

Daily Deviation

Given 2001-12-30
abstract politician soup by rajivmathur is a truly original and well composed work. The poet begins abstractly and builds to an elegant thoughtful ending. Wonderful x 9! Selected by `faithwalker. ( Featured by devart )

Unique, creative, very intriguing the way you laid out this poem.

You made us think
you made us write
we have to agree with you tonight
no matter how we say it
no matter how we squint
we'd have to do some polishing
before the world made any sense

~ what a great metaphor for politics, incomprehensibility, collateral damage, taxes, death, arms races, senates, parliaments, borders, starvation, lobbying, voting, leaders, wars, and pathetic humans who pretend to care while they seek power.
a naive plea, it laughs at the absurdity...

when the stars are in position
all will be revealed, but i know
that until then, unless the stars
surrender all will be concealed."

that part made me smile. i said to myself, Ah, rajiv is his wise self again in this poem. and you are so true, so wise. what changes the way we see things? it's tjust the same old thing in the end, no? decorate it with lace, dip in some chocolate, wrap with foil.. still the same thing presented in a different way. you wrote this so well, rajiv.
