“Stop writing love poems”

he decreed!

Bhawana Pokhrel

“Why” … i asked him dubious

“Be social” … “write reality”


Corruption, immorality…

Nay, that’s not my cup of tea

Love lies in my yard, beauty

In my lea

All the worldly filth, stinky sin

Is for the petty, politician-bin!


It’s my turn to ask thee:

What can be more social

than Platonic

Love and Beauty

in a post-modern sea?!


When honesty is the only policy…(!?!?)
