Vivek Tiwari (23 July 1985 / Gaura (R.S.) Pratapgarh)
Society! Society! Society!
Its obstacle to all liberty!
Eat if the society allows!
Wear if the society allows!
Shelter if the society allows!
And live even if society allows!
Does it cure starvation and poverty?
Does it fill degradation with beauty?
It reins upon with 'Might is right'
Down with weak and pomp upright!
Helps you till you have enough to spend
Quits you a rotten meat
When your crowns to spend is scant.
You yield, you devote, you die for its sake
The resulted reality is a blunder fake.
Keep on feeding its bottomless belly
To deserve its praise, its dammed strategy.
Doth it ever act in reward
To common, to poor, to Destiny discard?
No rule, no rod to power and pomp
All frame is formed for feeble folk.
It preys the meek in tiger's jaws
Tearing the flesh with merciless claws.
Stand alone, valiant and brave
To fight against this vice domain
Rules for freedom should be freely dispersed
Difference of rank, difference of creed
Difference of position should all be cursed.
To bring the change
Be the change
Then there is the right
Then there is Change.
Don't be the driven cattle in fight
Be the hero in the strife.
