different hues
different shades
different colors
side by side
living in peace
why cant we
black white
indigenous brown
with each other
like a hateful
within our blood
that god gave
as single
to you and me

to randall der joel
my Canadian brother in Peace

Russian Roulette

1. A stunt in which one spins the cylinder of a revolver loaded with only one bullet, aims the muzzle at one's head, and pulls the trigger.
2. An act of reckless bravado.

Russian Roulette
from my head
in the spiders net
google searching
for Marziya
on the internet
at Flickr
a story board a set
a two day old baby
her journey
you wont forget
the course of my life
forever in her debt
no tear of regret

Raped In Her Sleep

Raped In Her Sleep, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. does anyone care
her life her misery
her despair her agony
drunk asleep
a tragic comedy
one comes
pushes himself
into her warmth
goes away happily
than comes the druggie
pushes into her forcefully
while her child
watches haplessly
this is the dark side
of mans ignominy
casting his evil spell
to be or not to be
seminal words
re echoing a sordid
a film reel
that goes on and on

Mere Pas Ma Hai..

Mere Pas Ma Hai.., originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 100,187 items / 606,876 views

mother dead drunk and asleep
giving birth to children
easy and cheap
lost promises
she need not keep
while her child
in the public garden
takes a tarzans leap
mere pas ma hai
says the child
on a garbage heap
molten tears
on the pavement seep

Bollywood Struggler
helpless homeless and tired
emigration check not required
his services soon will be hired
from every job each time he his fired
main hindustani an immunity acquired
amitji sharukh bhai se hai inspired
his time will come he is sure of that
for his grit and determination admired
to his celluloid dreams totally wired
if not a film star than a light man
or a dress man or a a spot boy
as fate will conspire ..
a shelf life that will never expire

in his courtyard
standing in
long serpentine
line they wait
to cast their vote
that will change
a politicians fate
with great promises
in his speeches
he used his
line and bait
hook and sinker
no weight
with his vote
he will get
more wealth
on his plate
while the voter
in a fools paradise
in an unending
miserable state
for a ride by
a ballot box
his future
in like
over ripe
in a crate
