The Birth of a Feathery Singer | A Poem by Pijush Kanti Deb

The birth of a feathery singer
bestows a burnt painter with a landscape
comprising of two feathery opponents
one is dead and found on a heap of garbage
and other is born to ensnare the singers and poets.
It exiles all the tamed pets
smashing their old cages into dust-
usable in the germination
of the innovative seeds of earthly greed
but only for the opportunists and shrewd.
It arranges a duel between the God and the Devil
setting us around the ring as supporters
to make the field tumultuous round the clock
forgetting the killing of a poor scavenger
by a melodious arrow cast by the feathery singer.
