The Birthday Cake

I gasped

As the knife slashed

The big birthday cake

Over three layers 

Pink, White and Brown

Framed in days

Eyes gaped

As the hot creamed oozed

And the flesh bled

Sugars,powders and flavors


To a pulp

In the big greedy mouths

They laugh

They cheer

Blowing the last gleam off

As the age travels

To the end of days


(An allegorical poem at the backdrop of Separatist movements)
