    Post your poems, limericks, haikus et al here.

    My God is much stronger than yours,
    And this I have to ensure, even by use of force;
    Men I may have to kill, but then,
    Surely, I will straight away go to heaven.

    Religion divides and religion kills,
    More than the sum of all major ills;
    I dare you to answer truthfully, if you can,
    Did man create God? or God create man?

    No religion is more than seven thousand years old,
    Humans existed much earlier, I am told;
    If early man did not need God to be strong,
    Why do we blame Him, if things go wrong?

    If God exists, it is beyond any confine,
    Of scriptures,rituals and religion, yours or mine;
    So if for something, you think you need a religious nod,
    Wonder,whether God made man or man made God.

    Brilliant piece! Thought provoking. Some background on when/where/how did this come about?

    She was seated on the sofa, right beside me
    as I nervously fingered my goatee
    This was the time to summon my eloquence
    and at the same time drop all pretense

    Her deep blue eyes
    seethed with malice
    As I tried to explain
    why I cheated her thrice

    I reasoned with her, or I tried to
    she waved off my words with a sardonic, 'that's true'
    Never to lose hope, I shook her shoulder
    only to see her eyes turn even colder.

    Now came the moment I was dreading
    where she threatened to break off the wedding
    Which she proceeded to do, by leaving her seat
    and run about the place, calling me a cheat.

    She took off the ring, threw it up in the air
    it fell to earth, I knew not where.
    She went out through the door, out of my life
    nevermore to become my wife.

    I am thinking this section should be more colorful.
    lets investigate if we can do something to change background and colors for this section.

    THE DYING WISH
    the girl was dying,and she knew it
    but more than the pain what hurt
    The attitude of the consultant
    who was so distant..so curt.

    It all started wid a niggling cough
    which just refused to go
    endless rounds of doctors and then
    on the x-ray a lung cancer did show.

    I am too young to die she screams
    neither do i have any vice
    wat about my aspirations and my dreams
    i always ws very kind and very nice.

    chemotherapy did little to help
    she lost her hair and her appetite
    wat worried the doctors eve more
    she lost her will to fight.

    the girl was dying and she knew it
    but more than the pain wat hurt
    the attitude of the consultant
    who was so distant so curt.

    doctor,I am not just another case
    I am a person,you know
    more than ur medicines,what will help
    a little sympathy if u can show.

    Incoherent Ramblings Of An Abstruse Mind

    What would happen,
    If I were to die tomorrow?
    Would anyone mourn my absence,
    And feel a deep dark sorrow?

    Would this world stop moving?
    Would tears of leaves fall from the trees?
    Would the birds, in pain, stop their breathing?
    Or would people cry and fall on their knees?

    I'm like one ordinary fir,
    Lost in an endless, dense jungle,
    My death causing not a single stir,
    The only dirge like murmur-a senseless jumble.


    Yet, that's not true,
    That little sparrow whose house I was,
    Would pluck it's feathers and rue,
    If only I was, If only I was......


    And that little squirrel,
    Who used to play in my shade,
    Would mourn till his tears fell,
    Lest the sorrow from his heart should fade..

    Who is the squirrel?
    WHo is that sparrow?
    It's too difficult for me to tell,
    I'm just a poor boy, not even sure of tomorrow......

    From The Archives:-

    World cup final, a clarion call for action


    So what if experts predict a Lankan win,
    Deep in my heart I know,
    After all the action and clearing of the din,
    Kumar sangakara has to kowtow!

    After all, it is our Tendua's lair,
    And he has never a final Cup win,
    All Lankan weaknesses will be laid bare,
    Regardless of Malinga's pace and Murli's spin!

    Forget the tensions. enjoy the game,
    Whether you like cricket or not,
    Are daily lives are so insipid and lame,
    Cricket victory makes us all hot shot!

    So help me Lord

    O lord! Give me power,
    So that I do not cower,
    When ruffians hold sway,
    And I just look away.

    Lord, give me learning,
    For knowledge, a yearning,
    Not for any personal gain,
    But to help people in pain.

    Lord, give me kindness,
    In my heart a never felt mildness,
    So when helping people in need,
    My egotism, I can cede.

    MODDED VERSION:-


    THE DYING WISH

    the girl was dying,and she knew it
    but more than the pain what hurt
    The attitude of the consultant
    who was so distant..so curt.

    It all started wid a niggling cough
    which just refused to go
    endless rounds of doctors and then
    on the x-ray a lung cancer did show.

    I am too young to die she screamed
    neither do i have any vice
    wat about my aspirations and my dreams
    i was always very kind , very nice.

    Chemotherapy did little to help
    and the sessions took its toll
    she lost her hair , her appetite
    what worried all the more, she lost her will to fight.

    the girl was dying and she knew it
    but more than the pain wat hurt
    the attitude of the consultant
    who was so distant so curt.
    She felt lost , so distant and in fear
    and longed for some love and care
    her insides bled, outside she cried
    difficult to withhold, however hard she tried

    doctor,I am not just another case
    I am a person,you know
    more than ur medicines,what will help
    a little sympathy if u can show.

    Gradually She knew her time was near
    A fact she had accepted without fear
    All she wanted the world so show
    Was a little bit of affection, you know

    A child so sprightly, so charming, so sweet
    Suddenly had become like a piece of dead meat
    With her smile vanished, hair gone and her body lean
    And the world around her was so cruel so mean

    the girl was dying and she knew it
    but more than the pain wat hurt
    the attitude of the consultant
    who was so distant so curt.



    survival of the fittest,
    in her school she had read
    but never imagined in this world
    such philosophies still bread

    she thought all this was of pre-historic times
    and this was a new age with a new ring , a new chime
    but her aspirations quashed, her thoughts destroyed
    and with her feeling and life , even the Almighty had toyed

    the girl was dying and she knew it
    but more than the pain wat hurt
    the attitude of the God Almighty
    who was so distant so curt.
