Adam and Eve in Paradise

Image Source

With her eyes closed Eve lay
Draped around her innocent heart
The magic of garden soothing her soul
Happy and in a Nirvana poise
She heard the swishing of the winds
The buzzing and whizzing of the bees

She heard the soft footsteps of Adam
As he walked and quietly laid by her side
The smooth skin of apple touched her skin
As Adam playfully rolled over her shin

“Taste it! Feel its sweetness” he said
Knowing in his heart to be a forbidden fruit
“No” said she and crumbled up her nose
Then turned her body to other side

But Adam, obstinate, disobedient lad
Forced his wishes, till she relent
Condemning all humankind pact
Unmindful that the world would end

And so the story, as is told
It was Adam that seduced Eve to crime
Or else they would still be living in paradise.

Unbearable Noise

Lok Pal bill

Right or wrong
India in rage
Anna fasts
Flash back
Each one was the victim
To avoid delays,
To get the work done on time
It was important to pay a bribe
Nothing was odd, not a sin
Everyone tumbled
It was the way of life
If you didn’t
You were lagged behind
Window to window
You scraped your feet
With little green money
You could slide with ease
Cut long queues
At government offices
Glide through pyramid of files

Or else, you sat
Digging your nose
Bound by string
On all sides
No justice unfurled
Long years wait
Child become man
Dementia set in

Will things change?
Can the legal system be tamed?

We wait and watch
As Anna loses weight
Lok Pal bill gathers dust
While crowd agitates
Children join too
They learn new word
Restless is the nation
Media offers guides
To be or not to be
Anna’s compliance

Sound is a beautiful illusion
If made of rhythm and words
But if it turns into chaos of discussions
It just another unbearable noise
