www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [We Need A Maradona]
We need a Maradona
A player with defensive tackle
Not one with over-polluted fresh air
We need a Maradona
Who will score for us a goal
Not one of disorientated exaggerations

We need a Maradona
A player that dribble without tribalism
Not one that red cards unity
We need a Maradona
A decisive player
To pass on solutions not pollution

We need a Maradona
Not a Karateka with a Katana
An idealogical probe
Leading a full team of 36 players

We Need a Maradona
Not of a Snake, nor a wolf
Offering with sheep handshake
For 20 15 wafts close
…Like barbecue sauce

We need Maradona
Whose strike won’t miss insecurity
Dribbling corruption with one move
One that will leave a footprint of unity
In our rocky field…

We need not the best player
But the worst in best form

  1. Sharmishtha Basu – A bookworm transformed into an addicted writer. I love to write and illustrate them myself. By love I mean love, no half-hearted relationship, a full-fledged, passionate love, I can’t pass two days in a stretch without writing/painting (cyber), just feel empty like lovers do when their lovers are away on a tour! Even though I am thoroughly enjoying self-publishing with amazon, but if you like my work and want to publish my works in your magazine, books or better if you want to publish a book of my works please make me very happy by contacting me. Or if you want to sell my works on commission basis only!! contact me, I will be quite relieved. Honestly writing and selling your own work is a very BORING combination. So you are more than welcome! Mail me @sharmishthabasu@hotmail.com, sermistabasu@gmail.com or go to- my blog (I have 16 blogs in wordpress, all active, some on daily basis, every one on weekly basis screaming and vowing my LOVE for writing and painting- this one is first-born, so special) mydomainpvt.wordpress.com (You will get the link to my remaining blogs there) or you can check out my ezines- monthly- Agnishatdalezine.wordpress.com And Agnijaat.wordpress.com if you want fb you can go to my page facebook.com/sermistabasu, linkedin- linkedin.com/authorsharmishthabasu my email id sharmishthabasu@hotmail.com and sermistabasu@gmail.com I am in goodreads and completelynovel too http://www.goodreads.com/sharmishthabasu http://completelynovel.com/sharmishtha-basu http://amazon.com/author/sharmishthabasu I guess I said enough about myself, right?
