Gods of the Last Bench<br />Poem by – Lavlesh Shukla<br />lavleshs@gmail.com<br />
Sitting on the rear corner bench,<br />Amid my own daydream,<br />Random sketches on my notebook,<br />Never quite made up...
I tried, I tried, and I tried to swallow<br />But still, but still I could not see.<br />And even though I’d love to follo...
And so did the same, my fellow bench men<br />For their residence could not be seen.<br />But bigger a reason was withheld...
I tried, I tried, and I tried to swallow<br />But still, but still I could not see.<br />And even though I’d love to follo...

Poem - Gods of the Last Bench

  1. 1. Gods of the Last Bench<br />Poem by – Lavlesh Shukla<br />lavleshs@gmail.com<br />
  2. 2. Sitting on the rear corner bench,<br />Amid my own daydream,<br />Random sketches on my notebook,<br />Never quite made up their sheen.<br />Some were names<br />And some were numbers,<br />Shallow did they really seem?<br />But they, alas, were my only option<br />To get this load off the beam.<br />
  3. 3. I tried, I tried, and I tried to swallow<br />But still, but still I could not see.<br />And even though I’d love to follow,<br />These scribbling make a merry me.<br />
  4. 4. And so did the same, my fellow bench men<br />For their residence could not be seen.<br />But bigger a reason was withheld,<br />With the speaker, that a scream.<br />She spat and sang, Oh good dictator,<br />As if one was so so keen.<br />And we, embraced in deluge of thoughts<br />Never really knew what she did mean.<br />
  5. 5. I tried, I tried, and I tried to swallow<br />But still, but still I could not see.<br />And even though I’d love to follow,<br />These scribbling make a merry me.<br />Thank You<br />lavleshs@gmail.com<br />
