Man With The Solar Brain

His brain awash with solar rays
The man with the solar brain
Walks past the cotton fields
And the mobile towers
Listening to the tweets and
The songs of extinct birds.

Extinct is he, a dead man walking,
But with solar winds
Colliding with his body
Packed in the barks of extinct trees.

He is the last man standing
In a field of dug up crops
And the rumble of a future city
Yet his pyre is yet to be lit
As he has his crematorium  in the extinct sun.

Extinct corn, extinct buffalo,
Extinct water, extinct air,
The extinct man with the solar brain
Walks on bravely with a sun on his head.
The son of Solaris, the planet of dead green memories.

His phone rings, he picks up,
And from the phone flows out
That great evergreen Bollywood song
