Poetry by Pragya Suman

Mandela

**********************

An atlantic ocean leaped off--

A crack in the ledge

Twenty seven circled cage


Table bay harbours lobster

Bake the black monster

(among lobsters, oysters shrimps and sharks)


But he was going to test himself

---An ordeal in an ethereal oven.


The Robben Island got at once pale

-- When

White whims were whirling in vainglorious boost

Roast -- roast--roast
