Firoze Shakir Poetry
my cleavaged brain – 14 viewsmy brain
like a coconut
of a water melon
red black seeds
with other cells
un written poems
that within reside
waiting to come
slide and glide
some into pictures
some as poetry
to be unread
on her heart
without hurting her pride
that is someone else’s bride.
a stunning blow
re echoing a silence
that says mournfully
once again access denied

This one I am using as my poetry subject
no woman I would want to sleep with
discordant times recession makes sense
I d rather sleep with a life size horny
telescopic zoom lens
a libido far flung and immense
no nagging no bragging no wifes regular nonsense
no more viagra no more spanish fly
if it does not get up no need to get tense
no more old days no more new days
no more taunts no more
she getting pregnant
no more gestational suspense
an indian dress a mere lioncloth
gandhi wore it churchill took offence
no for a million bucks
I wont wear a kilt
I may be stupid I am not dense
Love poetry hate Racism
I am shocked at my poetic moderation
are words to my racist antagonists
as my only ahinsa based self defense
it takes two hands to clap
two hands to repair a broken fence
what shocks me a mere insignificant
Indian gutter fly
caused a fluttter not worth two cents
bashed up egos albaster white faces
bashed up hollow poetic pretense
wounds that will take time to heal
add it to the exchequer as incidental
cybernetic medical expense
my soul banned at poem hunter
smoked out with the fragrance
of a pest killing incense

I Cannot Get You Out Of My System – 79 viewsI cannot get you out of my system ,
Its not humanly possible.

Thats love Pianissimo ed

And you wont know pain
My hearts windowed pane,
The light from your heart sustain.
blood stained glass wont complain.
Your world is a blog...blogged heart..
That my blood wont ever drain....
I cannot get you out of my System
I will go inhumanly insane.
And I write this as the world sleeps and snores on the other side of midnight ..on the childrens computer..that is barricaded from me and my drivel spewing brain. ..
I feel like my thoughts are frozen in the refrigerator..of my head and might crack up... break like ice.. watered all in vain.

The Lathi charging never ends
Used as a means to an
to brutalize public opinion
to sodomize human rights
a political paralysed
system to defend
cries of pain
tears in heat and dust
as they blend
the khaki terrorism

as its sends
knowing that there are
insult to a democratic
measures do offend
under the pay
of a political terror
while the government
with sealed lips of silence
the officer in charge
they will suspend
yes the policeman
is no more our friend
unhealthy signs do portend
no returns no dividends
a goonda raj
with which we are contend
the main criminals on the loose
the poor man they apprehend
pull his hair kick, blows , punch
to a level of a barbarian they descend

what a trend custodians

rules that they bend
travesty of justice
no this system

to be a cop
sell your soul to the devil

a juicy posting

the best of humanity
choked on a river bend
no telling tales
no loose ends
the khaki raj

Like me you must have seen the TV clip on lathis being raised on defenceless women, an old man being kicked by the cops..I dont say all cops are bad, but the system that protects rogue cops is bad, outsourcng of security agencies is bad, crazies enlisted because the backward caste system has to be safe guarded.. most of the cops , army personnel need immediate psychiatric care, they have to be treated, healed, I see this as the main priority..
There is no policeman over the policeman..unfortuntely..the disease has set in very deep…cancerous..killing the country by default..The images of police torture in custody.. well I dread to think about it, if what I saw on the screen is brutality at its very best..the political netas owe society an explanation..

A Pope Apologises – 19 viewsphoto courtesy
The Catholic apologies of 1998 and 2000 are different from those of other denominations:
Apologies are on behalf of some unidentified "sons and daughters" of the church, but not on behalf of the church itself.
The apologies are vaguely worded so that it is sometimes difficult to identify which past atrocity is being referred to.
It does not include any mention of present behavior that is sinful or deficient.
It does not describe any plan to prevent the recurrence in the future of past crimes against humanity.
The Church teaches that, as an institution, it is pure and without fault. It was created by Christ and is maintained by God to be free of error, in the past, present, and future. It is only individual church members and leaders who have sinned.
Pope John Paul II's apology was opposed by many Vatican leaders. Some church leaders felt that a confession of past errors might cause many Roman Catholics to wonder whether the church is currently engaged in sinful behavior that will require some future pope to apologize for sins committed by the church leadership in the early 21st century. Most often, policies that are directly or indirectly linked to human sexuality are mentioned, including the church's:
Ban on divorce,
Ban on contraception,
Ban on in-vitro fertilization, and
Treatment of homosexual orientation as an objectively disordered state.
However, John Paul believed that repentance will transform the church and enable it to lead the world into a "new springtime of Christianity." He was able to overrule the Vatican Curia.
On 2000-MAR-1, in Paris, representatives of the Roman Catholic Church held a press conference which, according to Reuters, "outlined a framework for seeking forgiveness for past errors without necessarily admitting responsibility for them."
1 The French translation of a new church document: "Memory and Reconciliation: The Church and the Faults of the Past" was released. It had been prepared over a three year interval by a papal commission, the International Theological Commission, under the auspices of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger. It contains "some 90 pages, divided into 6 chapters." 8 The document was published in time for the church's ''Request for Forgiveness'' theme day on 2000-MAR-12. This was synchronized with the first Sunday in Lent, a traditional time of penitence. This is one of many special observances associated with the Church's millennium celebration in the Jubilee year, 2000.
Memory and Reconciliation" acknowledges that individuals within the Church have committed serious errors in the past. Father Jean-Louis Brugues, one of the report's authors stated: "We have mentioned a few errors, but we could have had a very long list, too long a list. I fear the list will never be finished." He continued: "The Christians of today are not responsible for the errors of the 19th or 16th century. We are not responsible for errors we did not commit...We have had to find a way to liberate and purify memory without talking about responsibility.''
Pope John Paul II's verbal apology
Bishop Piero Marini, the official in charge of papal ceremonies, described a series of apologies which were to be made from Roman Catholic pulpits around the world during the Day of Pardon mass, Sunday, 2000-MAR-12. He explained that "The reference to errors and sins in a liturgy must be frank and capable of specifying guilt; yet given the number of sins committed in the course of 20 centuries, it must be necessarily be rather summary. [sic]" 3
The Pope delivered a homily during the in St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. He included an apology for wrong done to "women, Jews, Gypsies [Roma], other Christians, and Catholics." 4,13 Some excerpts from Pope John Paul II's speech are:
Referring to the church's relationship to Jews, the pope said: "We are deeply saddened by the behavior of those who in the course of history have caused these children of yours to suffer, and asking your forgiveness, we wish to commit ourselves to genuine brotherhood."
In an apparent reference:
to the mass murder of individuals that the church considered heretics,
to the various schisms within Christianity, and
for manifestations of religious intolerance.
the pope said: "We are asking pardon for the divisions among Christians, for the use of violence that some have committed in the service of truth and for attitudes of mistrust and hostility assumed towards followers of other religions."
According to the Toronto Star: "Though broadly worded, the petitions made reference to the historic mistreatment of women 'who are too often humiliated and marginalized;' to 'contempt for [other] cultures and religious traditions;' and to hatred for society's weakest members."
"The document acknowledges sins only by those acting in the name of the church. It does not acknowledge any sins by the church itself or those who have served as its popes..." CNN.com, 2000-MAR-7 10
"John Paul II wanted to give a complete, global vision, making reference to circumstances of the past, but without focusing on details out of respect for history." Archbishop Rino Fisichella of Rome
"It is quite a remarkable and admirable thing that a church that considers itself holy, that believes its popes are guided by the hand of God, would acknowledge and ask forgiveness for mistakes of the past. But what about the mistakes of the present? Let's hope acknowledgment of today's exclusion and rejection of women won't have to wait for whoever is pope during the next Jubilee." Joan Ryan, San Francisco Chronicle. 15

The Malady of Malegaon

Inner Malegaon for Muslims
Outer Malegaon for Hindus
head and heart blocked
Vande Matram centenary
That time and energy consumes
And no rooms
Madame and Hon CM
Wipe away tears,
Blood and pain
With monetary brooms
Power failure of intelligence
The yellow jaundice colored
No smoke without fire
Add more water to the fumes
A few minutes silence
And municipal election resumes
Recycled sketches faceless
Trauma , joblessness,
That terrorism grooms
A carnivorous cemetery ..
Incarcerated body parts
dread life after birth
in motherless wombs.

Bush accuses Iranians of role in arming Iraq – 11 viewsBy PETER BAKER
WASHINGTON — President Bush bluntly accused Iranian agents Wednesday of providing sophisticated explosives to kill U.S. troops in Iraq but said he did not know whether they were acting on orders of the Islamic republic's leaders and denied using the allegations as a pretext to go to war with Tehran.
The president spent much of the hour-long televised session in the East Room addressing skepticism of his government's assertions regarding Iran and fears of a widening regional conflict.
"The idea that somehow we're manufacturing the idea that the Iranians are providing (explosives) is preposterous," Bush said. Repeating a reporter's question, he added: "Does this mean you're trying to have a pretext for war? No. It means I'm trying to protect our troops."
Bush rejected suggestions that his administration has provided conflicting accounts of the Iranian leadership's involvement in arming Iraqi extremists. On Sunday, U.S. military officials briefing reporters in Baghdad on the condition of anonymity said that the "highest levels" of Iran's government were involved, but Marine Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, later said he would not say the Iranian government is complicit.
"There's no contradiction that the weapons are there and they were provided by the Quds force," an Iranian paramilitary unit, Bush said. He added: "We know that. And we also know that the Quds force is a part of the Iranian government. That's a known. What we don't know is whether or not the head leaders of Iran ordered the Quds force to do what they did."

Wingless truth posing as lark
Enslaving the free will of a nation
