TALE OF A NUMB PLANET


by Raja Puniani

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-E


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
