Seeds of corruption
Grow into elephantine trees
We examine the thorny fruits,
Test the tawny leaves
Under tight security.
With intense care we dissect the reasons
But forget expertly
Where exactly the root sleeps.


Multifaceted colour
Of flowers and leaves
Never quarrel at once
How come
Such a colourful country
Fails to take a leaf out of it
To live together.


For centuries together
They are bargained at worst
Men, as beggars in the market,
Squabble over
Like vulture and beast.


The blackness
Swallows the light
Leaving the candle of hope
In darkness.


Light the lamp
With the fuel of wisdom
No smoke, no fire
Brighten all the way.
