Humans Vs Demonides
Poetry by Anthony Mondal
The cosmic laborers have taken over Planet Earth
The cosmic laborers of Planet Demonide
Earth, God’s favorite planet is now a demonide colony.
God weeps over His creation and his captive human children.
The rule of Demonides have forced God’s children into exile.
God’s children, they roam in wilderness shedding tears
….Shedding tears at the sad plight of Planet Earth.
And Earth, God’s beautiful planet used to be
A place of bountiful nature, fruit flowers and melodies sweet
An eternal spring playground, for the Humans and Divines to meet
Now is a prison made of steel, bricks and concrete
Where the demonides dictates and the humans weep.
Music Arts and literature they all have been banned
People pursuing Arts declared insanely mad.
And their glossy appearances, on beautiful maidens have cast a spell
Rescue we must our beautiful maidens from their shiny cell
Everything that glitters, to the demonides eye appear like gold
By hook and crook it must be bought and sold
And they build and rebuild and build some more
Till their soul hardens and suffer no more
Cacophony of noises the demonides adore
While Silence- they can’t tolerate
And to contemplate things beyond this material world
Well that is just too difficult for them to comprehend.
Mean arrogant overbearing and fools
Like a plague they have descended on the Human schools
By the brute force crushed, broken and torn apart
Defeated and humiliated is the sensitive human plant
Exploit, abuse and tyranny rampant
The demonides willing to kill the soul’s music triumphant.
Glorious Nature, fleeing in terror with her silent feet
Endlessly harassed and traumatized by their relentless pursuit
Not a moment’s peace, not even a little rest
And she weeps and mourns, remembering her pristine days
Where have friendship and joyous feasts have vanished?
Where is the celebration that was promised?
Dark days indeed have fallen upon Earth
Gloom reigns supreme, while misery boldly marches on
Yonder you hear the blood thirsty war cry of the demonides
To join their evil ways, for surely would be a spiritual suicide
And yet Hope still faintly beats her drum
Band together O Humans if you hear Her drum
Truth stands patiently by the way side
His luminous robe my mortal eyes blinde
Have ye Faith, have ye Courage O Humans
Your glorious days on Earth is about to begin
And certainly the day is near when the demonides will fall
Victory to Thee, Victory to Humans, Victory to your oppressed Souls
The Dilemma of Life
Is life just an illusion?
Where human beings are in total delusion
Or is it the vision of an ever better tomorrow
Which never seems to come.
Is life just mere formality?
A place where people worship artificial decency
Or is it about utmost sincerity
Which holds up our integrity and human dignity.
Is life just shattered dreams?
Where more dreams are discouraged than encouraged
Or is it the perseverance towards one’s dreams
Which gives significance to an individual’s worth.
Is life just fragmented events at random?
A place of chaos and mayhem,
Or is it fragments fused invisibly by the hand of God,
To make sense of the order that lies amidst the chaos.
Is life just mere apathetic utter Ignorance?
Where many dwell in stupendous Arrogance
Or is it the brilliance of Knowledge
That illuminates our life like a new Sunrise.
A Topsy Turvy World
Fish they nest up in the trees
Birds swim deep in the blue sea’s.
Men and women live in forests naked
While the beasts walk around in suits well dressed.
People walk with their legs held high in the air
And the heads they are dragged on ground
The sky is below and the ocean above
Somehow it just does not rain and drench us all.
The moon blazes during the day
And the sun throughout the night dazzles.
And the change of seasons, they are seen no more
Curiously as I watch the scenes unfold, trying to make some sense
Then it dawned unto me
Oh it is a topsy turvy world!
Born out of a mere fragment of my Imagination
And nothing more at all.
A Tribute to Women and Gold
Beautiful women and Glittering Gold
Makes the world go round and round;
From a time long, long ago.
A pretty Woman and a little Gold;
We all know?
Will lead many a men to sell their soul.
Though verily, this lust for Women and Gold
Is the driving force, behind this chariot of Mankind.
Truly without which, there would be
No un – folding of the history of Mankind.
It is the sole impetus of the explorers;
The urge of Great Conquerors;
The only passion known to painters, Artists
And Poets in multitude.
Without Gold and Without Women
Earth would still be a dwelling
But a prison house, with walls strange and unknown:
So with a heart gratified:
I pay my indebted respect and tribute.
To all the Women and Gold;
Past, present and future I salute.
Without them, mankind would have nothing to contribute.
