Man in a Woman Costume

God, Man and Woman

By Firoze Shakir
In the cradle like womb

lies birthright of a


the father of man

in full bloom...

humble beginnings

live let live

go back

as food

for worm like thoughts

in an unmarked tomb.

God the Dress maker

Man in a Woman’s Costume.

Woman undressed

Mans Everlasting Doom.

Dark shadows on his

Ancestral awakening loom

A dead corpse to exhume

The world a mortuary

A tenanted room
