The Same Way Again


Say they in my language
” arraitha maaveya arraithu”
it says in a way
doing the same thing all day
what most of us prefer
want not to refer
nor wish to risk
like to have everything free in a whisk
a safe play all over
not a bit lower
nor could anyone claim better
a piece in a platter
is worth more than the one yonder
a different thought in a ponder
finds no takers anymore
it is the old familiar faces all the more
ideas in a way parrot-like
the speeches and the games all alike
well that is the how the big shots want
it is possible as nothing is can’t same faces again

I sniff and smell all the way
could not trace its origin in a way
I peep and peek through the window
could get no clue from the flow

yet unable to locate the scar
scar, you might knit you brow
it is to me a bruise to Nature in score
a sandalwood tree could be cut
the smell of sandal permeates
a hurt to the tree so far
the gain to man without a bar
a scar to nature in all.
