Treasure Island

Daniel Trevelyn Joseph

(21 December 1945 / Mumbai, India)

Dream


Interrogation was going on at night when
Shri P Chidambaram was unreasonable, at last
Forcing me to say, “I am not Secretary Agriculture,
Nor of Planning commission nor Commerce,
But I am Secretary, Urban Development Department,
And I am not expected to have the data you want”.
I woke up with the words ringing clear in my own ears.

My God! Am I a buck-passing bureaucrat still,
Three years after retirement, and in sleep, too?

And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
