Sukhlal


You should have not died Sukhlal.
You should have been
careful, very careful, while handling
T.V set, Dish antenna, live wires.

You should have been cautious
about electric hazards.
Stupid you Sukhlal, stupid you.
You have simply wasted your life.

Sukhlal, how could you surrender
so easily to death without any fight
without any objection, without
without giving any chance to anyone?

How could you Sukhlal how could you
forget the faces of your young daughters
and of your old mother and wife
before you breathed your last?

Sukhlal, Sukhlal
You should not have died
You should not have died
Sukhlal, Sukhlal, Sukhlal.
