Kabilan


Kabilan has nothing
to do with the Sangam poet.

He is a scholar in his own way
explicitly bombastic.

Calls himself as “Tamil ocean”
a pointed disgrace to the unfathomable.

Addresses his fellow poets
as devil, demon and pimp,

An unbecoming character
he provokes with promises.

Quotes extensively
from the epics and puranas.

Considers his memory
as an invincible strength.

Walks with his nose in the air
forgets he is similar to dust.

The way his audacity overwhelms
invisibly it belittles him.

He has to learn humility
to win over the hearts of Tamil lovers.
