Bullet Proof - Poem by hasmukh amathalal

You have laid your life in vain,
Worry was not for self main,
But the way it was to be put off,
Only because of jacket bullet proof,

Is it not the national shame?
Where there is no answer and only blame,
All credits for prompt action claim,
Still shameless remain at the helm!

It is all for the material inferior,
Obey the orders of superiors,
Lay down the life and call the warriors,
It is only because order of superiors,

Should we not call it a day of doom?
Flower faded and found no bloom,
National shame and all over gloom,
No answer and no monitoring room,

Have you ever heard bullet pierce through?
No guarantee for life if they are true?
Playing with precious life of man in uniform,
Not because they are unaware and in form,

Greed for easy money and fame,
Simple way of playing life game,
No one to question what is their fate?
Interested only in commission and rate,

Time has come to test the integrity,
Not the quantity but best the quality,
Who can stand for the honour of the nation?
Will find the place without any question,

Note: - inferior purchase of bullet proof jackets resulted into the death of valiant police officers of Mumbai in the wake of 26/11 attack.
