Tickling Jousts

If tehzeeb were imposed

I would flee

dressed properly

in my neatest sherwani


Tickling jousts seek something else

wars need white flags

where bodies are found in bags

egos tattered in rags


This is different

posing tickle as stab

punch as jab

where is the scab?


No, tea is fine

care to join

tonight is benign

but the burden of form, must refine!








I must submit
