Don'T Die A Borrower - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah
Told his son, an old tribesman on his death-bed
in the eastern border of Afghanistan
how much he owed to merchants
from the Afghan terrain to Indian Plateau
and they should all be paid in full.
"Pay the dues in full", he pleaded with his son
and when all the transactions from his mind were out,
he breathed his last in peace in British ruled India.
In the same land, the misled youths get training now
to make bombs and to use modern guns
against the people of their own and the other sects.
