A comrade of the sixties


Those saddening days
Of childhood
Of great depression
Doom and gloom
From sixties
To seventies
Aftermath of great wars
Sino Indian
And
Indo-Pak
In succession
Drought
Flood and pests
To add
Elders tell

A cousin
Whom others call
A comrade
Chides
The peril
Not only of war
Drought, flood
Or pests
But Tata and Birla
The rich
Amass
All wealth
There
In Russia
And China
Beautiful
Welfare of all

The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
