One poem by Rati Agnihotri


Camouflage

Camouflage the devil, or all hell will break loose
That is what all wise men say—
There’s a spin in every upmarket doctrine after all
So why not trick the God of goodness?

The God of goodness with goodness camouflaged
And the deep throated devil with his charming ways
What if both hit the high street in a post enlightenment mode?
And put up a performance in all those notorious hideouts

Mingled breath of performers and spectators—
The whine and whisky did the trick
The devil and God joined in the ranks.

Mutual discord became a thing of the past
As the sweet venom of camouflage worked its way.
