Unwarranted Manifestation

Hallucinations of the empty mind

Harbouring notions of a reciprocal kind

Steered the heart towards a promiscuous alley

Oblivious to the perils of this folly

Ocular banter initially felt like heaving a sigh

Emotionally fulfilling with optimistic high

Besotted, in a chase so obscure

The ecstasy turned out short lived and premature

With no dearth of citing an alibi

The significant other gave a go-by

Idealistic bubble all its air expend

The circuitous path soon culminated in a dead-end

Traversing from throes of fantasy to reality

Helped recognise the blurry thin line of immorality

A saving grace from falling prey

By banishing thoughts that would have led astray

Pondering if these thoughts were to course correct

Or an exercise to image resurrect
In an inquest, questions never blatantly deflect

Should one by no means experience a Soul connect?

A Deadly Impasse

With proceedings underway to impeach and

Senate yet to pronounce verdict to unseat

A clown perpetrates a crisis in the interim

Amidst the political landscape of Middle East

 

Snuffing out an officer at top echelons of armed forces

On unsubstantiated pretext of planning attacks

Of diversionary intent so disingenuous,

This strategy smacks

 

Crippling a nation with illegitimate sanctions

By scuttling a pact and ruffling feathers

Naive the bully was, in taking cudgels against

An adversary, assuming they were pushovers

 

Over the casket of slain general, the country vowed

To slap the aggressor in the face and in outrage wept

Through a shower of ballistic missiles on Usanian air bases

Promise of a retaliatory strike, the Persians kept

 

Allegations of asymmetric warfare they ascribe

Whilst practicing doctrine of invading nations on the sly,

Ensconced with military bases across the Persian Gulf, to

Meddle in proxy wars on foreign soils alongside their allies

 

Though good sense prevailed, no more armed conflict

Underlined the President’s speech

Nevertheless, the House of Representatives legislated

Curtailing power to launch military action beyond his reach
