Close cousin of the vulture.

Imperial bird of prey.

Munches on the corpses of retailers.

Green eyed too

a petrodollar

fueled tornado

engulfs the third world like Tsunami.

Swastika mission to space

When there is no

Unoccupied sky left

To launch a space shuttle of peace

A rocket with an emblem of swastika

Will cruise without any ceasefire

To the limitless boundaries of space .

The barren space

no air

no water

no life

no cries amidst the rubble.

The world of loss is expanding.

Apogee and Perigee

A small rocket shaped

Piece of mud from the moon

a clay model of space shuttle,

it is pointless to collect souvenirs.

The perigees of the satellites

Were  all above the poverty line.

The satellite image of impending

Drought and cyclone

absent from the apogee of the newspaper replaced

by a glitzy ad

Fiscal Apocalypse

Skyscrapers of cascaded credit

Meltdown in the heat of global warming

Cholesterol of the rubble

Chokes the arteries and veins

Cardiac arrests

Seismic seizures

Tsunamis of rising sea level

Washing away lifetimes of toil.
