Jai Ho ! (old repost)

Jai Ho !
Haphazard concrete
Warrens
Aping things foreign
Wall graffiti
Declaring cure alls
Unfinished headless
Structures
Pigeons and vultures
Lascivious pious
Smarmy neighbor
Vying Joneses
Allah mullah
Jesus sidling
God pantheons
Aspiring spires
Peals escaping
Temple bells
Belles bearing
Water pots
Riff raff taking pot shots
Holy unholy
Ubiquitous peepul
Tree
Peopled by glittery
Red scarves of desires
Ancient dusty
Towns lost
And found
Sunset to sunrise
Amidst herds of cattle
Would be cities- attentions bite
Bytes visual
Stab and wound
The Discerning with nibbling bites
