Naive Asoka

Thrust into matter time and space
our daggers swords and spears
scored in every place
as conscientious participators .

Commingling at kalinga for me
our victor’s blood and theirs
relegated their whole army
to die for our ones’s by the pairs .


Days are for the powerful
and power for dilation
my experience was unintentional
my nature suffered violation .

Any deviancy in kings
may evolve from battles-
let all proud men be kings
then win them battles ;

my victory rattles
the very bones of my dreams
night and day startles
with impropriety of screams .

It may be the play of the dead
to preach, but it is my business
to earn from what the dying said ;
on rocks i have carved redress.


Initiating repair
i rake up
leaderships heir
to followup !!
