from an hopeful Chapbook-to-be, ‘Raining Sun’!
In Indian culture mango’s termed the king of fruits.
I’ve no idea of the West, but if they taste probably the same there
as they do here, then I wonder if Trump will still
allege it as alternate news. Though I read
Indira once ranting how they taste as flavored cardboard
in some part of the Kingdoms where she bought them,
so I’m pretty sure Westerns are ignorant of this aphrodisiac.
I tried to give them a taste, be it a pic clicked from my rooftop
boasting of a mangifera orchard, lying as if rising,
as my house is quite on the non elevated side
but I failed: there’s way too much entangled
Electricity cables, going from everywhere to everywhere
in the way: they mar the perspective. Though I tried my all,
from all the angles, fallen, stood high and in the between
but the tress are just not photogenic. Ummhmmm,
not a bit. So I had no other option but to steal
and credit it, as taken whence on the internet.
