It’s no go writing Poems on Shakespeare
If washing hands Does not become an obsession Like that of Lady Macbeth It's no go writing poems on Shakespeare. If the rebellious forest does not move As falsely assured By the weird sisters It's no go writing poems on Shakespeare. And if Macduff not born Of woman Does not become a reality An unnatural son of the earth It's no go writing a poem on Shakespeare.
Through My Camera
The man was standing In front of my camera Not at all worried To make him anxious and indignant I found out a trick and told him Come, look at the splendid world Through my camera I asked him to peep through the viewfinder And I began to change the focus of the lens Now near and then far away My hand is adept at it I asked him How did you like this game Of expanding vision He answered back Where is this variety My eyes have lost light
