Second thoughts

A fleeting stream of consciousness
       
What is there we have to lose in this emptiness,
When nothing is left in the barren terrain,
everything is spoiled with the paucity of ideas.
The gun, the blood, the lust, the avarice, the drugs,
the stinking resilience bind the consciousness.
The supermen and jungle warriors
of fucking politics and lousy economics;
The marching bands
of gun-toting spin doctors have razed
the reluctant sprouts in the jam,
the matériel of messy legit masters
merely miff the mob and trigger mayhem.
Old men lie bleeding
with syringes and guns and debts
whilst antsy mothers cried for their lost kids.
The lost kids burgeon
in the labyrinth
of pesky geography and nagging history,
consume in the theatre of the absurd.
Casting the vote for the tricksters in each ghetto,
paying off the elected tricksters
to bring a smile on their wives' puckered visage.
And in a flash
they lie bleeding
with the syringes and the guns and the debts.
Fight for the freedom
whilst we sing the redemption song;
Fight for the money
they think it's their legacy
whilst the hoi polloi gallop
hell-bent for leather to make both ends meet;
Fight for the land
in the plains and the hills
and fall into the pit of jerkwater notions;
Fight for the prestige
our great ancestors had renounced
for the sake of race and religion and power
whilst crooked regimes unwind in the catbird seat.
This is the calamity of nothingness.
This is the nadir of a society.
This is the end of a history.
I choose not to persist
The fleeting stream of consciousness
I choose to believe in my free will.

the song of desires
bring me the guitar
let's while away this nightfall
of blood, hate and pain

we killed and murdered

we found blood and hate and pain
the night will be long

seemingly painful

it is to the night itself
ah! ingratitude!

now you sing the sing

whilst i play the melodies
as the night hollers

wait for the morning

and we will begin afresh
new tunes, days and hopes.

Numitki mangalta ngairiba lamlanba

Famli eina chaoraba sorok asigi chidaisida
Inglaba numidang gi nungsitsinasu na yeirari fijol fajana thonba ngamdraba hakchang asida
Sandhyada takhhiba nongdunasu saruta ngairaba unsase pura chothanbire
Inglaba hakchang seeda sagatnaba tasinduna famjabani
Nokpiraganu eingonda amuk tolaba jibani haiduna
Nangna eingonda amuk utpiranu minungsi
Leitare eingonda apamba amata
Eina ningjabadi numidang asina loikhraga thoklakpa anouba numitki mangalta fangjabani.
