A Gandhist Doing Politics (For Anna Hazare)

Gandhism is good, but to do politics
Wearing khadi kurta and dhoti
And donning a khadi cap
Not good at all
As Gandhi never said to politics
In their name.

Be a Gandhist, but do it not politics
Under the banner and platform
Of Gandhism
As it is wrong to do Gandhism
Donning the clothes
And calling a follower of his,
A political scion of the icon.

Save the nation from the corrupt politicians
But do not excessive politics,
The drama of it,
Acting and overacting it,
Assess it,
Are you not on the gain,
Getting benefited from your political agenda?

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
