Owl, Who?

Indian Bloggers


An owl disguised as a crow,
Barged in at day light,
Soliciting superfluous questions,
Crafting pointless propositions!

It wanted to seize a trade,
Forgetting dark was its arena.
It wanted to rule the light,
As a self declared king!

Where poise flew excess,
Uneven mind lost its conviction,
Even its fart smelled perfume,
Loyalty had left the room.

Fellow owls had a meeting that night,
No one could track its fate.
For it was not seen by any,
That day was end of its many!

Tagging for the daily post prompt: Uneven

  1. That owl was destined to meet the light
    It had to follow it’s own fate

    This is the comment on second read, on first read, I was reading it seriously till I got to the point of it’s fart was a perfume and I couldn’t stop laughing

  2. Very interesting poem Prakash….
    I really liked the image of an Owl trying to be a Crow…..
    Sherri-Ellen & Siddhartha Henry
    P.S.: The Purrince wanted me to tell you he has a Crow friend named Krishna…..I wonder if he can change into an Owl? Hehehe….

  3. Thanks for the follow eh!
    Really loved the poem, very fun read yet simultaneously intriguing. Would I be correct in interpreting this as a satire piece?
