MUHAMMAD SULAIMAN BULANGU DEAR BARDS

Dear Bards, let's make them obnubilate
battalions of people arrived and departed
but thou are alive and continue to stay alive
I told them thy soul will never evanesce
but they respond to me, I'm "rattlebrained."

If it's not true, why Shakespeare still alive?
If it's not true, why Wordsworth still alive?
If it's not true, why William Blake still alive?
Like all these, thee too, will remain animated.

Thy longevity soul that will stay animated
Thou will never fleet as long as doomsday
as long as this universe thou will remain alive.
Now the solace of thy mind be like peace
it's fair and square to continue stay animated.

The echo of thy voice will last evermore
The roar of thy pen has become the solution
The pen is thy postured weapon of the verity
Solemnly you became my better medallion
and this wording will give life to thee.

Be hilarious.
Don't concede the harmful.
I denied the parenthesis because it violates
perplexedly it's irreversible.
Dear bards, thou are alive and continue alive.
Thou will never die until heaven pops up. © Muhammad Sulaiman Bulangu EASTERN STRANGER

Eastern stranger reached me in my backyard.
It comes like a nuclear weapon
side-splitting all the innocent people
like a terrific battle.

Since I had heard from my neighbors
but now you come to my side.
Panic consumes my heart
Eastern stranger you are lovable.

I had heard the screams all over the world.
I had heard the condolence telegrams all over the world.
I testified the scared you have wrought
and the mournful you have made.

The calamity I had never met before
the remarkable year I would never forget.
Funeral be like wedding ceremonies
loosen reams of my relatives.

Rightness all over the world
nor market, nor schools, countless nothingness
but hospitals are not enough to save the antiques
all the cities are closed like prison cells.

Only condolence messages are trending on the net.
World's cities become like battle environment.
My condolence message goes out to you,
may your gentle souls Rest In Peace.

This particular one above, "Eastern Stranger", was written by the poet during the pandemic period of Covid-19.
