Amitabh Bachhan

a poem by Pancholi Nandlal Kanjibhai

A poet’s son-
Who entered the ring of filmdom
Like Mike Tyson
Acting unconventionally
Delivering dialogues like hot balls of fire from gun
He mingled fantasy with fun
His roles as orphan foresaken child heightened his rhetoric to the point of misanthropy
His dialogue often sounds like heretics’ comments on life
But never he smacks of cynicism
Upright, tall, invincible-
He stalks on Hindi Cinema Screen
Like a conqueror
After vanquishing an unknown island
Kids are fond of him
Because he is fantastic story teller
But I behold his life as poetry
Because he is the greatest poem
