Doctor Of Philosophy

He caged a raven thereby saddening a sufi
gentleman ,who thought none of the fraternity
of man incompetent to do something so absurd .

Actually ,when consulting the mirror of his mind
and the one in his bedroom, he would
impeccably reflect a raven for what all it stood

and as if to justify a mystic law
(using tangible bars for vicarious effect )
he would gaze at the “himself-confined” in awe.


You know this to be a raven and i
too know this to be a raven but
does the raven ….? i plant him this query .

the true nature of the individual was
the inducement ; mirror authorities
offered him what bird to shut !


He must have fallen upon Vivekanada or
Epictetus ,for when last i met him he
had imported a nightingale to set it free!
