AT YOUR MAJESTY’S CALL
By Neel Anil Panicker
Move over, all ye denizens, roll out the red carpet for here I come…the Boss of the Universe, the absolute king of one and all.
I hold the reins of your lives in my belly button.
Slaves, all of you are, ever beholden to me for your everyday happiness.
Polyglot, prescient, omniscient, omnipotent…I am all of these and then some more.
The world’s clocks are set by me…I control your wake up times and sleep times.
None can escape my gaze, my waves are so sharp, my range so far and wide.
I know every single one of you; the one who is in love and the one who is not.
The one in hate as well as the one about to fall in hate.
For some I play Cupid and unite two unknowns across the seven seas.
For a few others, I am the assassin’s code, sending to death their enemies with a single push of , yeah you guessed that, my belly button.
Bright as a sun I shone though some mistake me for just a phone.
