The morning after

(image credit)

They drunk together.
They played together.
They couldn’t not touch each other.

The night was warm.
They both were hot.
Your place or mine, she asked.
They chose hers.

They both liked it.
The following day, her boyfriend didn't like it.
She regretted it.
Now he is in jail.

Many a face
on the net he assumes.
A soldier, a teacher
a child and a groom.
He can be any person
he’s wanted to be.
There are no limitations,
the net set him free.

Friendships, affairs,
they are all within reach.
Discussions, new feelings,
his life is so rich.

One day she appeared,
just like that on his screen.
The fairest of women,
avatar of a queen.
So funny and smart
and they always agreed.
The cyber was great
He was lucky indeed.

Now she’s broken his heart,
and he tends to forget
that it’s his own creation
that's made him so sad.

The Merciful God has Mercy Only on Those Who Mercy Others

Blinded by hate
crusaders can’t tell
the gates of heaven
from those of hell.

It’s not with blind hate,
it'sclear heart and mind
that shows us the way
and lets us see God.

The Cock and the Pearl

A cock strutting in the yard
Found a pearl in the hay
It’s only mine, he called the hens
Everyone here away!

He pecked it once, he pecked it twice
Before taking into beak
He tasted, chewed and then spat out
It’s not a thing to eat.

It’s stupid, useless piece of junk!
He called in great dismay
Why does man adore it much?
It’s not as good as hay.

While some would claim ignorant cock
Missed treasure he could have
What value is a pearl to you
If hay is what you crave?

The Monkey and the Glasses

Chimp the monkey felt one day
his eyes were getting dimmer,
and if banana was too ripe
became so hard to tell,
so off to the magician went he
in quest of cure or spell.

It’s easy cure the wizard told him
not even need for spell.
Glasses is all I’ll give
easy to use as well.

I never heard of such a magic
The monkey said in owe.
Please can you give me just a dozen
I’ll take with me to go.

A dozen pairs the monkey took
and off he went on trail.
He tried them on his head and also
balanced them on his tail.
But even though he made big effort
His eyesight stayed as frail.

Do I really look that dense
the monkey cried annoyed.
This magic thing just makes no sense
it’s nothing but a fraud.
And in fury he threw and shuttered
the cure he thought was flawed.

Happy children
Cheerfully playing
On a sunny day
Turning bluebell carpets
Into purple pulp
