Treasure Island

Hardik Vaidya

(26 Dec 1969, I won't be dead till you know I am alive. / Mahuva, Gujarat, India.)

Stick no Bills


We see you everywhere,
On large bill boards,
Plastered on walls,
Hanging on poles,
Always smiling, eyes full of promise,
Usually in a small group,
A few cronies peering,
I love India's Bharata Natyam,
Every day I see Democrasy pole dancing.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Bharata Natyam is a very revered and exceptional form of Indian Dance, the word here is used in a different connotation, the politicians irrespective of which party they belong to stick bills at every nook and corner, and are always there to service the people, through their plastered faces, thus its Democrasy dancing at every pole, just as the strip tease and pole dancing at Las Vegas.
