Had It Been So

Had It Been So prose poem

Uploaded by SUMIT NASKAR


Had it been so that I had the wings of fire,
Or If I were a true born human,
Or I were powerful even as a devil,
Or had I been able to read the mind
Of good and evil and of common and uncommon,
Or if I had the will of a spider,
Not to leave until meets its end,
Or had I the power of a tree
To throw off its decayed leaves
And make a new start,
Or if I were at least the bright moon
To compel retreating the darkest night,
Or had I been blessed with the power of a Samson
To uproot the pillars of this envenomed estate,
Or if I had in me the atom bomb,
Not like an inert lifeless thing
But an active self-operating body,
Or if I were an invisible deity,
Or had I the tongue of truth,
Or even if I Had the Dr. Faustus’s contract
Of blasphemous happiness,
Or had I the power to revive the past,
I would delete the word of war into a raw saw
And burn those excess grown heads
Taking fire from the devil of hell
Or I would crush them by the feet of civilization
And give pleasure to all in equal length
And pronounce what humanity would have needed.
Then, I would make a new start
And continue with the braveness of the Spider-
I would build a new utopia!
I would foretell the cause of misery.
I would disclose the dangerous minds
And stop what is unstoppable.
