OIL AND WATER

July 17, 2009

by Tsoltim N. Shakabpa


I am oil
You are water
I am Tibetan
You are Chinese

Under cool conditions
Will be our positions
Me on top, you beneath
As doth nature bequeath

But when I am burning
With fury and yearning
If you try to put me off
I will burst, explode and scoff
And cause a devastating fire
To realize my true desire
