Colourless God

Colourless God,
Let's add some dye
for plain can't be divine.

Colourless God,
God is a canvas in the mind
Let's paint him in our kind.

Colourless God,
Let us make God in our own image
Then say ours alone deserves homage.

We were having a discussion on twitter when Poetra tweeted this and I wrote this in reply

Pajamas Pockets

I have a theory about why pajamas have pockets

The Vulture

In times of famine,
The Vulture does not eat grass.
When Leopards are lean
because antelopes nowhere to be seen
The Vulture sits and watches,
Waiting...

Those who mocked his baldness
Will do well to remember
None has seen the Vulture's corpse
And he is secure in the knowledge that none will.

So,
when it rains
And they mock him
For having no nest still,
He holds his peace,
Watching...
For the Vulture, he's a patient animal.

The Vulture is not vindictive,
Those who mocked will die,
Those who didn't will die,
It matters not.
For when carcasses lay ripe
The Vulture does not ask
If his feast was once friend or foe
