Lotus Sitting Roof Tops

Lotus Sitting Roof Tops

A Poem by Abdul Batin Osman Bey
"

Inspired by Edward Lear and Old Henry Scabs

"

Sweet tooth monkey swinging tree

Coconut barking dog

Unzipped pants in the park

Mushroom houses little sidewalk

 

Afternoon sunbath glimmering reflections

Corn flake roller skates eye ball numbing

Natural tobacco prays for an Indian

Otherwise paid penny peeper got her wisdom

 

Sally jokes no ones laughing

Atomic bomb on an anthill

Four this burnt one remains

Government issue 404

Hats off to the hatters glasses

 

Catholic well runs deep and dry

Cellophane baby does nothing but cry

Imaginary reality never trusts

The dance of Hassan in the only spawned web

 

Sterilize the dogmatic

Traps in clouded feet

Hail the woman with twelve stars

Though she can’t help you in your time of need

 

Get glazed apathy

Hammer hummer intricately

Avoid the void spinning round

Tibetan Mecca on a reel to real

 

Going up

Going down

Lost what I ounce found

Moving on

Moving on

 

Hanging up

Hanging down

Lost what I ounce found

Moving on

Moving on

 

Crimpy crispy turned to cream

Hippy dippy lost his dream

Crimpy crispy turned to cream

Hippy dippy lost his dream

 

Fits the keys push it in

Fits the keys push it in

Mantra Krishna Holy Bargain

 

Time to go back were I came from I gatta move on back

Back before my worth

Before my birth

 

One direction one direction

Back before the earth

Back before my birth

There is just so many images to sort through, it was much like a twisted wonderland, political roller-coaster. Very, very ingenious word play, though I might not understand half of what was said, I did find it quite enjoyable.
