“Not in the empty sugar jar
Nor in the orgy of black tea
Your destiny is never that far
In cipher find your infinity”!
Who could not keep a job for a year
I looked thru him, he smirked at me
He bragged to be a billionaire
Who forgot to pay my ‘petty’ school fee!
He filled my empty life with thoughts
To be someone something someday
My faith in him tied up in knots
When he came drunk like Hemingway!
He lost his life’s delusional dream
To the world’s vicious sophistry
If not in bazaars of esteem
Where Father Hid His Misery!
