Portrait of David


171112b_

David was from Northern India and had lived in the United States since 1987. He was a postmaster for United States Postal Service in the Palmdale, California, USA office and had been working for the Postal Service since 1990. He really liked his job. When he worked, he didn’t wear a turban.

David was a Sikh who wholeheartedly believed in his peaceful religion, “I believe that whatever you do, that’s what you get back and that’s why you have to be good to other people and always do good things.”

Coexist Sticker


Coexist Sticker

This sticker’s on an automobile.
It has a dream that’s unattainable.
Yes, it’s a very vain appeal.

Who’s out there seeking for an ideal,
when gods are unexplainable?
That sticker on any automobile

is a sarcastic way to conceal
a peace that is not sustainable.
I tell you, it’s a vain appeal.

The concept has a tendency to reel
you in. You think it is explainable?
The sticker found on some automobile

attracts attention with its pretty teal
color. But it’s not obtainable.
Coexistence is nothing but ordeal.

Don’t put away your sword of steel.
Soldiers, you are strong and trainable.
All those stickers on a junked automobile
are nothing but some vain appeal.

C is for CATS !

I kinda chose to put up my cynical view of how people of diverse religions can’t really love one another.
For those who don’t recognize this, it’s a villanelle.
