Lallu And Kallu Two Rustics From Bihar Wanting to Be Leaders

Lallu and Kallu, two rustics from Bihar state
Wanting to be leaders,
Two blunt and bogus fellows,
Villagerly rustics,
Illiterate and uncultured
Who do not even how to talk with, how to behave with
Wanting to be ministers,
Lallu and Kallu,
Lallu, I mean Reddie and Kallu, I mean Blackie,
Two jokers, clowns or buffoons
They not for entertainment
But to divide and rule,
Usurp the throne
And once the fool sits on chair,
He will not vacate it
Unless pushed down
As the uneducated fellows know it nothing
But the lathi, I mean the stick, the baton.

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
