Social Paradise

December 13, 2020 - Reflections
Social Paradise

Coincidence of wants is what drives the marketplace
The swap nature in which exact desires are met with fiting demands
One person dreams of the skies while they possess the moon
And you, on the other side, can paint the rainbow and want to extend the daylight
The love parlour has people searching for different things

When you’ve seen enough sunsets
And the newborn puppies in the fold know you by name
You grow some wisdom therein
And you appreciate the power of compatibility
You are happy and excited to see just one friendly eye in the audience

While you may not be a tribalist or a racist
You are fairly smugged on meeting people from your little dorps
Because you can showcase your naivety in full
You can talk about the river, the chief’s chickens and the songs of the village night
Because both of you find home in each other’s company

The one who’s been causing me sleepless nights of fantasy
Fits into my ideals more like a key to my lock
And she startles me by her reading
She’s gone through the schools I dream of; the ones with dormitories
Her certificates are like my father’s photo album

And when you turn to her bookshelf, you see literary giants everywhere
So, I ask, how do you woo and lie to the girls who are well-read?
Do you go into the laboratory chambers to concoct some chemistry?
Or do you appeal to the gods of my mother for a spell of blindness to her
Because the thought of her appending your name thereafter is social-paradise
