Light, Camera, Action!

Haiku from Theatre of the Absurd

✂-------------------✁-----
I put on my shirts
And I put on my pants then
I got a pressure


✂-------------------✁-----
They come from Bombay
There's nothing to do with them,
We go to Delhi


✂-------------------✁-----
In Delhi we spend
Hundred winters and summers
When our home's burning


✂-------------------✁-----
Go back to the hall
Life's created on large screens
Reality's a hell.


✂-------------------✁-----
As the screen rolls up
As men and women appear
All the world's a crap


✂-------------------✁-----
Heroes and heroines
They have redefined largely
Our absurdity


✂-------------------✁-----
The projector's smeared
When the kids watched Peeping Tom;
Bared hands, kill the poor


✂-------------------✁-----
Directors come here
Make movies for funds, friendship
And we puke film reels


✂-------------------✁-----
We understand well
Our thoughts they speak on the screen
Subtitles sleep tight
Haiku from Theatre of the Absurd

✂-------------------✁-----
The show must go on
The army and the rebels
They rape each other


✂-------------------✁-----
The bugs bite my bums
This theatre is infested;
Blood, bombs and bullets


✂-------------------✁-----
As the gods walk down
Up the highway; and blockades
Molotov cocktails


✂-------------------✁-----
Action, the chief barks
Howl like a dog to the dogs
Big dogs and small dogs


✂-------------------✁-----
NTSC, PAL
They have name all of them, while
We wait for the light


✂-------------------✁-----
The hero waits long
The producer has taken
The heroine for good.


✂-------------------✁-----
The frame rates speed up
A-kill, a-rape, a-molest
Hail democracy!


✂-------------------✁-----
All's written on scripts
Sisyphus must continue;
The boulder of fuck.


✂-------------------✁-----
Peace, cameo's role
Fighting is the new hero
Brain's the sole villain
