Creed
by Steve Turner

We believe in Marxfreudanddarwin.
We believe everything is OK
as long as you don't hurt anyone,
to the best of your definition of hurt,
and to the best of your knowledge.

We believe in sex before during
and after marriage.
We believe in the therapy of sin.
We believe that adultery is fun.

Freedom Xiv
by Khalil Gibran

And an orator said, "Speak to us of Freedom."

And he answered:

At the city gate and by your fireside I have seen you prostrate yourself and worship your own freedom,

Even as slaves humble themselves before a tyrant and praise him though he slays them.

Ay, in the grove of the temple and in the shadow of the citadel I have seen the freest among you wear their freedom as a yoke and a handcuff.

Sonnet 66: Tired With All These, For Restful Death I Cry
by William Shakespeare

Tired with all these, for restful death I cry,
As to behold desert a beggar born,
And needy nothing trimmed in jollity,
And purest faith unhappily forsworn,
And gilded honour shamefully misplaced,
And maiden virtue rudely strumpeted,
And right perfection wrongfully disgraced,
And strength by limping sway disablèd
And art made tongue-tied by authority,
And folly doctor-like controlling skill,

A Dedication - To K.S.G.
by Henry Timrod

Fair Saxon, in my lover's creed,
My love were smaller than your meed,
And you might justly deem it slight,
As wanting truth as well as sight,
If, in that image which is shrined
Where thoughts are sacred, you could find
A single charm, or more or less,
Than you to all kind eyes possess.
To me, even in the happiest dreams,
Where, flushed with love's just dawning gleams,

The Dog
by Ogden Nash

The truth I do not stretch or shove
When I state that the dog is full of love.
I've also found, by actual test,
A wet dog is the lovingest.

Don’t cut a cake! Awake! Your Birthday is Fake!
by airatmaninravi AiR

Do you cut your birthday cake?
Do you know your birthday is fake?
Don't continue to make the mistake
It's time for you to now awake!

Ask your mother when you were born
You were kicking weeks before and this went on and on
You were alive long back, she knows
And even science has pictures as the embryo grows

Stop it Stupid
by airatmaninravi AiR

I was so stupid, I was a fool
But they didn't teach me this in school
'Stop it, stupid!' had I told myself
My stupidity would have ended with this tool

We all get angry, we all do fear
We are idiots, year after year
How can we stop this misery and pain
How to stop being foolish, again and again

CONSCIENCE
by Richie Kharis

Something natural
Something true
yet invisible
That’s not you

You were made wonderful but from the dust
You grow weak and your body whither
Yet one thing never dies, it’s only part of you

It yearns for goodness

ईश्वर और ईश्वर पुत्र
by Eshan Singh

आज भी उन्ही सवालों में सोता हूँ
खुद को ही खुद से खोता हूँ।
ना जाने ये उम्र कब ढल जाएगी
ये खुशियां आंसुओ में बदल जाएगी।
आँखें खुलते ही ईश्वर हम आपको पाते हैं
ज़िम्मेदारियों का बोझ उठा कर खुद को आपसे दूर ले जाते हैं।
आज भी आपका पुत्र हर परिस्थिति को सोचता हैं
कही आप मेरी दुःख से दुखी न हो जाओ इसीलिए आपके सामने होते हुए भी मुँह झुका कर आंसू पोछता हैं
उन् आंसुओ में मंद मंद खुशियों को गाता हूँ
मैं आज भी उन्ही सवालों में खुद को सोया हुआ पाता हूँ

गोपिया
by Eshan Singh

जिन्होंने भगवान् के नाम पर खोली हैं दुकाने अपनी वो तुम्हें भगवान् से दूर भगाते हैं। तुम्हारे करो को भगवान् कभी वस्त्र चुराते कभी गोपियों संग नाचते दिखलाते हैं, जिन्होंने परब्रह्म को अपने अंतर में साध कर गीता जैसा ज्ञान दिया इन पोप पंडितो ने उन्ही को राधा और गोपियों संग बाँध दिया, निर्वीर्य बनाकर भगवान को भक्त से ही छांट दिया। सारे पाप उतर जाते थे सिर्फ जिनके चरित्र का करने से मनन इन पाखंडियो ने तो
कर लिया उनके ही चरित्र का हरण। तुम आज भी इन्ही कल्पनाओ में सोते हो, अनजान ही भगवान् से हाँथ धोते हो।
