"Wonderful words!"             [ghazal]

Who were they fighting & what was I seeking   in the end?
why were they biting & how was I reeking   in the end?

the complaint pertained to a stink-bomb   in the bazaar
what were the blossoms I noticed out-peeking   in the end?

when the restive crowd is intent   to cast the first stone
where's the Messiah renowned for his speaking   in the end?

our culture is premised on tolerance   wonderful words!
what's the suspicion & why is it sneaking   in the end?

Ardeo addressed the ascetic   under the bo tree
if nothing is hiding then what are you seeking   in the end?
