When the Blues Just Don’t Matter

Sing me a song that shows the gal is so slimy
Playing those cheap games so my soul wants to leave me
With a Hench full of stench and a gun for a tickle
To poke into chicks with those beaks full of sickle
Find me a dame that goes mad from the show stuff
Find me a job that keeps my guard off the gal’s huff… Read the rest

The Troubling Premise

Avishek Sahu
April 18, 2016

Gimme some freedom from these wedges of anger
Gimme some freedom from thoughts of revenge
Gimme some freedom from the pain of the fright past
That I know no part of me should want to avenge

Wasn’t I profound and better than sad folks
Who couldn’t seem to find me better than them
Now that I’ve made more money than Jesus
Wouldn’t I be counted as heading the helm… Read the rest

The Politics of Survival

Avishek Sahu
April 14, 2016

Man I want to be smart and con the fucks to hell
With my brains so taut and tart and a will to cause a sell
Read through pages of power and the tips to hitch a ride
Through the hallowed grounds of punts and the punts that ride the tide
But every time I shoot that rabid mouth of mine
To show the bug his place and bang him … Read the rest

Give Away the Hoots!

Avishek Sahu
April 12, 2016

Burnt to the bottom with the new kid in town
Driving in the bonney that just shines all around
Heaving through the bunnies like it ain’t a last shot at hell
Wouldn’t you give me a piece of his sweet swaying swell
Wasn’t he the guy that took a candy from my bag
Wasn’t he the bloke that shook a penny off my swag… Read the rest

Making Way for an Airlift

Avishek Sahu
April 12, 2016

Fruits in the bucket thrown right out of five’s land
Brought to in luxury to purge through the merry band
Hoisted in the folk house to sing us the countries
With the phone off the hook sounding bells of the gentries

Setting up with coke for a showdown of the bad ear
Torn with the rub of an alien and a tart’s smear
To throw in the fish that swam … Read the rest

Hot Yoga on Wet Strips

Avishek Sahu
April 5, 2016

Hey Guru Guru, could you give me some yoga
Could you give me some freedom to numb out the rut?
That has me all sliding on and through circles
That circle my dear past and my life in that hut
Would you not tear me apart at the center
And breathe me anew with the charms of a blank slate
Would you not break through to the wonders of the … Read the rest

Leather & Sweat

Avishek Sahu
April 5, 2016

See the share brokers selling the soft shrift
Hedged on a gonner’s bet saving his pride
Asking to be taken beyond the sunset
When the whiskey could be taken in receding tide
When was the living so chaotic and dry
When was the success like singing a duet… Read the rest

The Virtues of Selfishness

Avishek Sahu
April 3, 2016

Hinged on a bird wire staring at the dew drops
Hoping for a tear drop to tear through the new props
That spread through the country heaping up on a heart stop
Brought through the screeches of the Bordeaux by the rice crop

Steer through the ming store changing dimes at the counter
Bartering the green bucks for the rhymes made from banter
Set up with a red baize for … Read the rest

The Secondary Primaries

Avishek Sahu
April 1, 2016

Vote to the fair of the gonners in the dink land
With a care in the beer can for the bozos in the death band
For the show is just over for all those in the know how
It’s just a last ditch try of the prime time and the chink chow
For a law that’s so woozy it makes me puke out of laughter
And a thaw that’s so … Read the rest
