Summer Afternoon


The summer heat gave birth to a brook of sweat

That ran halfway down my impatient forehead,

To fuel my hostility against peaceful minds-

Overheated pen is out on a summer trip,

May be honeymooning at Pattaya,

Or, laying a bet in Kathmandu…!

Till it returns home I’ll keep my window closed-

Or, hide my face inside a bottle of beer…

Who can play in a desert of hot air?

I’ve been to camel safari before,

And seen hundreds of mirage

In every “anything for you”…!

If you don't have any opinion you may still leave a 'Hi'. Just for your general knowledge, I love getting rebuked :-)
