Pleasant Sight

I giggled and laughed out loud, 
While gazed at the memorial statue, 
Near the narrow road in south-east London.
It cracked my ribs and brought memory of "the forest of a thousand demons".
His short gun, a replica of the one described in the novel.

I often connected to the childhood days while I passed-by
As it took me out of my immediate environs.
To one of the storyline, 
A pointer to where I stopped the last time.

A flashback of those days when my Mum read Koku Baboni
As I patiently listened and waited for how it will end.
These went on for a while, recycling the old storylines.
Till I stopped, right there at Trafalgar Square.

Ho, the beautiful Trafalgar Square,
Brought the memory of the lonely Londoner.
And I remebered, I've impressed it in my mind that
I can never spend my days in greater London
Like the lonely Londoner.

The agony of losing you
Is like a broken china unfettered hopes
That sparked neons to my buds.

Slowly you begin to sprang
Like a woman yielding to her man
Your beauty is a bang!

Oh I love this life
Sorrowful harsh heartbreaking laziness all sort of
All and love it gives.
