Pijush Kanti Deb- Three Poems

The Company and Its Right Track
Everything is normal to mirror
yet to the new eyes of today
the company stands on the wrong track
causing traversing of sea-less clouds
in the sky
and on the land
transferring of driver’s seat
from the heaven-returned father
to the hell-returned son
provoking the son and his commercial magic
to set Thames on fire
in the very outset
commanding the following assistants
to run in the same groove
setting all confusions and hesitations
at rest from the secret path
linking Eldorado with the company’s treasury
for soliciting a big push
to welcome the company again to its right track
immersing the obsolete hymns
of ethics and humanity
to turn the walking profit into a galloping horse
and the barren cloud into the fertile one
rich in seas and oceans to bloom
a winning smile on the lips of the rough and tough son.

A Peace-loving Family Man
The open screen of a market
projects a scene of a wrangling-
almost ready to set in
but one of the rivals is seen
to show his back to his opponent
before putting two and two together
saying, ‘’ I don’t like fighting’’
and cutting both ways his image
to the disappointed on looking crowd-
interested in enjoying a dual free of cost,
who remark as per the ink in their pens,
‘’ He is gentleman’’ some opine
while other oppose,’’ No, he is a coward’’
but the returning rival mutters,
maybe, to himself or to someone else he likes,
‘’I’m no other than a peace-loving family man’’


A Lonely Body
The softness of heart feels pity
on its young but lonely body
witnessing its bed-tumbling
round and round in its deep slumber
saying to himself
‘’ It needs a partner with anti- tumbling device’’
and obtaining too
the comment of a poet living in it
‘’ Wow! What a sweet longing for salty sweating’’
but both start stammering
looking at its trembling pocket
with shrinking wallet
and beating hard their stony fate on the wall
causing the waking up of the body smiling
projecting a happy flash back
of the passionate love of his dream-girl
who comes daily in his dream
to make it enchanted
to its cause of bed-tumbling
and unmindful
to his compelled miseries and loneliness
and alive too without the sweet nectar of reality.
