TALE OF A NUMB PLANET

Once upon a time
There was a nice young girl
She used to be a  
Beautiful
Stunning 
Gorgeous planet

She was so cute
That
Comets were driven crazy after her
Shooting stars would tease her
Every night 
Even the distant galaxies would 
Gaze her possessively  
Stars would fight with each other
To marry her
And aliens tried in vain 
To kidnap her  

She is getting old now-a-days
Getting dry
Getting dull

She is
About to die

Numb she was

She was
Raped by
A mad star
During an obsessive epoch
Of hunger and thirst

Oxygen-
-Water-
-Amino acid-

L-I-F-

Prodigal sons of Sun
Today
Loiter around wittily
In search of 
Nirvana
Sucking the blood 
Of illegitimate mother planet

She
Doesnít shed tears
Nor she cries aloud

She is neither hungry today
Nor thirsty
She has nothing to get
Only to give
And give 
And to give away all

She still gives
To her prodigal offspring
What she holds 
Inside her
Pale body 

When she was a charming girl 
Planet had posted
A letter
About her dreams  
Stamped with love  
To a distant planet

She still sees
That alien planet
In her dreams

Every evening 
Her prodigal sons 
Return home drunk 

Itís cheap and common-
Every home sells
Toxic wine of civilization
Served with 
Snacks of blind development

Old deserted planet-
She has nothing to win
Only to lose

She is brave
She has nothing to worry about

She is comfortably numb
