Quotes about varvara rao

Rudyard Kipling

With Scindia To Delhi

More than a hundred years ago, in a great battle fought near Delhi,
an Indian Prince rode fifty miles after the day was lost
with a beggar-girl, who had loved him and followed him in all his camps,
on his saddle-bow. He lost the girl when almost within sight of safety.
A Maratta trooper tells the story: --


The wreath of banquet overnight lay withered on the neck,
Our hands and scarfs were saffron-dyed for signal of despair,
When we went forth to Paniput to battle with the ~Mlech~, --
Ere we came back from Paniput and left a kingdom there.

Thrice thirty thousand men were we to force the Jumna fords --
The hawk-winged horse of Damajee, mailed squadrons of the Bhao,
Stark levies of the southern hills, the Deccan's sharpest swords,
And he the harlot's traitor son the goatherd Mulhar Rao!

Thrice thirty thousand men were we before the mists had cleared,
The low white mists of morning heard the war-conch scream and bray;
We called upon Bhowani and we gripped them by the beard,

Go home and die

(For those who died because of the holocaust
Of the AIDS denialism of Thabo Mbeki)

'Nobody knows you when you're down and out
...as for friends, you don't have any'
From a blues standard by Jimmy Cox

You saw them cover up for their cronies
Who should have hanged for the gross
Misconduct of causing the deaths of ten
Thousand innocent miners and a political
Solution was concoted to silence their widows
So you decide to hit the road to sat foot at a mine
And you take one last furtive glance at them
Who are imprisoned in the mines and fear
To go to the township because the place is full
Of tricksters and tsotsis of no particular origin
And you see the women who sell AIDS and quick sex
Under the trees and you want to live in a hurry
And you look at the boys who prostitute themselves

Barbara girl you are a beast/Varvara djevojko ti si zvijer

Down from your fangs words drip on the claws
You’ve said sparkling edges
The jaws of the night have heard

You’ve said
Tearing apart
Melting down
Diving flights
Parting
Halving
Brokenness
Each word you will bring back to the cut off breath
Each word you will bring back to the halved dawn
Chronically undernourished

Varvara djevojko ti si zvijer
Riječ i ti sa zuba kaplju na kandže
Rekla si oštrice bjelasave
Što ih je č ula razjapljena noć

On completion of the construction of the house

The house workers who had no house
Shifted their house things to another house,
Everything on their heads
And nothing over their heads.

Mutations

Those love cannot leave alone
Love those, cannot leave alone
Cannot love, leave those alone
Leave those, cannot love alone
Those cannot leave love alone

I think I believe a little bit in the power of people to really cast a bad energy on you if they want to. If the bad mojo wants to come your way, look out.

Sporous

Red September path covered in kisses
Autumn abandon

Abandoning what you ask as your teeth strip and gnaw
my flesh
Bruise-clouds flambéed for days
Stained as if I had gone berserk in a perfumery
Trying on too much

Women And City

actually time sleeps at night
while cities sleep in daytime
but their sleep gently touches
us in the evening as stale jasmines
remembered in time's sleep
their sleep is in opaque eyes
hidden in women's shadows
which get up and go after dusk.

I think if you look at Sam Raimi and Jim Cameron, those guys know things about filmmaking that almost nobody knows anymore. They are students of film from when they handmade films themselves, you know cut films with their own hands and razor blades and tape.
