The Table

Thursday, 27 September 2012 @ 23:33 | 0 Comment [s]

Beware, the rectangular slab  
squares you.

The table is a prison

to take you through 

interminable years 
hew at rocks, polish the chains, 
stare at white walls till
you see black lines; 
a peculiar number-juggling

for great talkers to corner you 

to prove their wit
(and your lack of it)     

the touchstone that shows 

you're not working if you're missing
and they've got long tubes of eyes
that follow you home

to take you through 

circuitous years
same forms, sames deadlines, same surveys
same complaints, same compliments -
and same old story again, and again

simply a wonderful spot for all of them

to put you in your place
where William Tell makes you keep still
to improve his aim.

Beware, the rectangular slab 

squares you.

Raj Arumugam

So, here's a poem I found interesting. Followers on Fluidified would've seen it already, alongside with my response, thank you very much ;)

More will come soon... Only if you want it :p
