What keeps moving?
asks my little one
water, sound, light
the wind with a flow
I tell him with a pride
he looks at me curiously
for a while
as I saunter up and down
smiling he points at me
it is you who keeps on moving
why call the remote?
Nurturing thoughts that are ahead of times,
Going about with plans that bring in chimes,
Opening up the world to futuristic rhymes,
Establishing a regime without crimes,
Are the designs of an intellect in intricate climbs.
Ideas may sound to be far-fetched,
Executions may appear to be out stretched,
Methods may look extremely etched,
Results may bring in cheer in the final sketch,
The intrinsic value is likely to be highly perched.
People may ascribe that it is far-flung,
They may challenge its veracity as low wrung,
They may oppose its enactment as though it is lowly sung,
They may destroy the scheme as though it is overhung,
No one can put a lock to Man’s tongue.
