Poem Of Angst
Poem Of Angst1 min 218 1 min 218
Absolute power corrupts absolutely, they say
Yet millions have reposed their faith
Will corruption take the driver’s seat?
The rainbow colours of the diverse nation
Will they bow to the saffron?
Ram and Rahim are one, they say
Will only Ram remain now?
Lies, damn lies and statistics, they say
If Statistics are shown the stick
Will we be left with lies and damn lies?
Swachch Bharat in the past phase
India cleared of all opposition
What remains are institutions.
Swachch Bharat in phase beyond
Will the institutions be cleared too?
Is this the beginning of an end
Or dawn for the new beyond?
Will all go forward in going forward
Or the forwards will go past the rest in a backward march?
Words pour out in angst from my soul
As fingers strike the keys left, right and center
As if in a march past, from the here and now to beyond.
