New Poetry by Pijush Kanti Deb

I Have a Drum

I have a drum
grammatically well tuned
as per the universal norm of  sweetness,
a keen longing to beat it
dancing and singing
traversing each and every cavity of human sense
and unfortunately a weakness too
as I lack an ethically authorized hand to beat it
but in the process
my young heart permits me
to purchase the authorized hand
in exchange for
my beloved money and self-respect both
while my old soul restricts me
‘’No self respect --- no life in a life
so let your drum be beaten by others’’
