It's not about them
but about you
we all know what the truth is

don't administrate but
divide and rule men.
the brits did it then
and you're doing it again.

people will die
but you will thrive
how long do you think
we'll just survive?

brahmins maimed their legs
you've brought crutches for them?
teach them how to fish
but you're buying fish again

the brahmins had convictions in deeds
you're just hiding behind the white suits

if you were a disease you would be
diabetes - silently you kill,
making every sweet poison.

you realise, darwin just turned
in his grave, didn't he?
the fittest just died.

take away someone's limbs
chop and dry the bones
and give them away as crutches
but mind you,
don't give them confidence to walk.

reserve for them a bench
reserve for them a dish
because you're sure they won't eat
they're not really hungry, are they?
eat their share while the hungry die.

it's the end of the day
you want to make sure
the sun rises tomorrow
it's your vote bank you count
and your swiss bank you flaunt

The Unicorn and the Maiden Fair

In a magical forest, in the faraway land
there lived a fierce,untamed Unicorn.

His mane was the longest, his hooves were the strongest,
a fearless Beast,he was king of the forest

his snort was loud and his eyes had the boldest stare
but the Unicorn longed to be tamed by a maiden fair.

Maidens are a myth,every unicorn knows.
Yet his heart yearned for the wondrous sight

as He galloped the forest in a furious flight,
and The dust clouds dark turned the day into night.

He reached a lake one night, in deep despair.
and his eyes beheld on the lake shore, a Maiden Fair.

The unicorn gazed at the bewitching sight,
a maiden fair,in the silvery light,

with the moon on her face and the sun in her hair
she looked alarmed,and ready for flight.

He stood transfixed and gave a bewildered stare
the unicorn gazed with awe at the vision fair.

"What are you, a phantom? A vision surreal?
A vivid illusion,I do declare.

a dream to torment me through the night,
just to vanish in the misty air.

Go away! Be gone from my sight, O Spectre Fair!
You don’t exist! You can’t! You just aren’t there!

The maiden said "It's you, Who’s a myth,
Inhabiting a universe phantasmagoric

who does not exist outside the realm
of legends, a world that is surrealistic.

I am but a simple maiden, not a being rare,
You I believe have emerged out of thin air.

This world, the universe, and heavens above
Our Kith and kin and bonds of love,

You and I, all are Mere illusions.
Manifestation Of Imagination.

If YOU will believe in my existence, if you care
Then I will believe you exist, said the maiden fair.

Her eyes were kind, Loving and clear,
and slowly he moved nearer and nearer.

She stretched her hand and touched his mane,
murmuring his name again and again.

And embraced him to her heart with a gentle prayer
The Unicorn at last had found his maiden fair.

Friends and assorted animals .


Billi is not one of them
Ordinary cats.

She has swish in the tail,
and she stalks them rats.

In the quiet of the night
You can hear her silence.

A fresh trail of blood is
the only visible evidence.

The Rat-pack got rousing mad,
and turned quite bastardly,

They hatched a plan,which was
really really dastardly.

They ranted and puffed their
little ratty chests,

They searched high and low
getting quite desperate,

But couldn’t find a single Rat,
Who could bell the Elusive Cat.


Arjun Bali is such a cool dude
He makes his girls take a swim in nude
He soaks them to gills,
From Spring to winter chills
Then packs and sells them as fish food.
