Hey Good Life
by Kumud Biswas
Bookmark and Share
  What a death to die
To die for others
So that the surviving suckers
Get bigger shares!
I'd rather live a really good life
And enjoy all good things of life
Before I cease to live.
My very purpose of living
Is to maximize my pleasure
And if necessary to kill
My next-door neighbor
To add his share to mine.

Making love to someone else's wife
Was called adultery
In the old-world vocabulary
That way the dogs lead a better life
For instead of liberating
Should true love bind
All of us to a particular tether
Throughout our wretched life?
Wandering into other's territory
May place you indeed in a spot very tight
But my friend, you ought to know
That only can give you the pleasure's height.
By no means be meek
Instead of waiting to be smitten
Or turning your remaining cheek
Take your opponent by surprise
For it has been correctly said
Offence is the best defence.
Do not covet anything like a coward
Take everything by might
For might decides what belongs to whom.
Don't bother what is a truth or what is a lie
In judgements there may be fallacies
But no absolute truth or lie.

And finally, before you die
Ensure you live only for yourself
According to these testaments new.
In the senescent world of days gone by
People had a senile view
Today's nascent brave new world
Is peopled by people new
These goodly men lead a godly life
Bringing about the very kingdom of heaven
On an earth which will in any case die.
