All English Sonnets
“Vyogi” is a misnomer. Sobriquet
Is mis-selected. Poets of true mirth
Who with full throated relish sing of Earth,
And earthly issues, gravely people say,
Must all be known by happy sounding name,
Denoting joy and bliss and mirthful ease.
“Oh! Voyeurs- listen” –His repartee came,
You do not understand the issue. Please-
The sobriquet by which the names are capped,
Are apparent symbols for this world to see,
And he who longs for meanings, only he
Will pick nuances which in words are wrapped.
The laughter, from the stomach that does rise,
Is really genuine agony in disguise.
