Little winged ones
how is it like in your world?
Do you have tiffs with your buddies
sulk for days
wallow in self pity?
Tell me pretty ones
how is it like in your world?
Do you have aches and pains
see therapists, specialists and doctors?
Maybe Shamans and healers?
Surely you don’t need to watch your sugar intake?
I have watched you long enough to see you get drunk on nectar
so it’s highly improbable: you watching your waistline!
Tell me my dainty friends
do you need to sigh and heave
cry copiously
deal with a heavy heart?
I really want to know my darling friends
how is it like in your world?
Do you believe in causes?
You know – politics, human rights and stuff..
do you chaps think your friends with prettier wings are superior?
My winged buddies
pray tell, in your world
do you chase happiness
read the Geeta to know better
learn to channelise the universal energy?
Do you feel the need to heal
fulfill dreams and earn money?
Dear ones
are you perplexed?
Don’t be – for those are but everyday affairs
of a species that’s supposedly the most intelligent on earth
but most certainly not the happiest ..!
Will you then, welcome me to your world
for I’m tired of games and scheming minds
my soul is worn out
and all I wish to do is sit on pretty marigolds, suck nectar
and perish unknown
with your ilk
