Poetry 2017 Longlist, Ekta Sharma


Ekta Sharma

the olympians once broke into a fight
and it seemed that hades would reign the skies
the heaven was aloof burning alight
and there was no way to demarcate days and nights
it was the arrival of the age of kryptonite
even the super heroes couldn’t survive
elves, hobbits and men died alike
the undead descended to rule the earth
the beauty and fragrance that once dominated the lands
was filled with the smell of rotten bodies and blood
amidst this devastation boomed a war cry
from the only living source who had managed to survive
and the story how it all turned back to right
is a folklore ma friends
which I won’t be telling tonight.
