The truth sustains
never will it see death
There is no food for the child
no clothes enough for the child
stands bare bodied the little child
the hair lies dishevelled on the child
the eyes send a pain from the child
the thin hands of the poor child
hesitantly comes forward in steps mild
extends her hand slowly to the passersby, poor child
pierces the heart with a stab though in a hide
then the girl carrying a child
knocks at the car windows for a while
those in the car drive her wild
wipes her tears with no shy
walks back to make another try
her mother is about to die
There are numerous Gods
in the Greek and Hinduism cards
schedule one to create
another to destruct.
wonder Gods destruct.
Found in both cultures
as they do nurture
a quaint abstraction
more or less a distraction
Shiva in Hindu cult destroys
ignites his third eye in a choice
Perseus grabs Medusa’s head
both versions excite instead.
Countless other Gods they allow
one each, for the wind, the sea and love
chivalry, knowledge, diligence
call for deities in reference
Could be a sign of indulgence?
Zeus and Zephyr to name a few
Vishnu and Krishna take the cue
exalted and enhanced by glamour
along with the shield and armour
enliven themselves with their paramours.
Rituals and festivals abound
accompanied by deafening sound
the upbeat feel is absolute
the unshaken trust turns resolute
enough to provoke an immolate.
Beliefs and virtues so dear
inculcate a thought of fear
to instil a discipline severe
shapes and figures were engineered
idolatry came to be revered.
Mythology has become a religion in play
myths are now scriptures in stay
Gods are in increase all through
penances are ascribed not in few
similarities keep us in blue.
Greek and Hinduism are ancient
their celebrations are fluorescent
talk about miracles in length all-time
yet the two profess a strength fine
a marvel they are with shine.
