View Full Version : Messages From Saudi(Poem)

The wide-eyed night bird
Flew me
Over hills and valleys
Into this enclave
Of termites,
This anthill perched
On this vast stretch
Between Atlantic and Sahara.
Inside the ban yard
Hungry termites busied selves
With slave chores.
Queen termite
Decked with ornaments
Sits atop the sacred throne
And rules with
Messages from Saudi,
Where King termite
Outstretched on sick bed
Mumbles incoherent messages.
Night bird
Fly me back to sanity
Lest I be enveloped
In the embrace of insanity.
