A dream and some verses

A dream and some verses

A pig was sitting in an animal farm 
holding a knife with his left arm

Thinking fast thinking slow
he let his thoughts sprout and grow

a thought of the requiem for a dream
for a dream he had where he met his frankenstein

while being in a sea of poppies
like the metamorphosis and other stories

for he heard some satanic verses from him
and thus the atlas shrugged in his dream, 

when he heard those verses
the ugly sound of mere curses

he felt like an idiot confined within the walls of four
he couldn't shout out loud, for it was 1984

he felt like a stranger in his faith's confinement
for his prophet played a tune of crime and punishment

thus broken the faith clinging on to his thread
thus erupted the angst from his fountainhead

the hatred he got from that dream of mist
the betrayal he got for being a hunger artist

he stroke the knife at his heart with his left hand
and thus got diminished into a point in the flatland
