This is the first part of some doggerel poetry I started writing a year back. I have no -zero – poetic skills…
I have written ten parts. It’s not yet complete. I wonder if I should complete it. I am putting it out here, cause I promised Swami Yesudas that I would.
Now,I have a stomach bug and a headache, so the formatting maybe awry… Blame the IPad.
And now, here goes!
“Puss in Boots
Went down to the roots,
Of Love, Hate & Desire
And what she saw there,
Set her heart afire,
For she saw that God is a Liar.
She went down to Hell
And rang the Bell
Of Lucifer’s great big door.
She sat on the floor
Of His great Big Hall,
And asked him to tell her all.
“Tell me, Oh Lucifer
Of lies and truth; for I am on fire”
He laughed and laughed
And said, ” I don’t want to earn God’s ire.
He has put you on earth,
And is rolling with mirth
And thinks of your heart on fire.”
“But, though I am small
I will try and tell all
That I know, of love, hate and desire.
These questions are deep,
And have often made me weep
But I shall speak, even if you think
That I am a liar”
“Truth is but a lie
Often missed in the blink of an eye
My truth is not thine
Nor is thy truth mine.
Who is indeed the liar?
You, me, or the old village Friar?”
Puss sat down, and shook her head.
This did not seem to her to be correct.
She looked up at Lucifer with doubt in her eyes,
And said, “Your belief cannot be mine.
Truth is absolute, and so is a lie;
I’ll carry this belief till I die”.
