The Government Of Jack Boots - Poem by Habib Jalib
If the dacoit had not had
The village guard as his ally
Our feet would not be in chains
Our victory would not defeat imply
Mourn with turbans round your necks
Crawling on your bellies, comply
Once the jack boot government is up
It's hard, to make it bid good-bye
Not: Written during Yahya Khan's dictatorship.
[Translated from 'Bootan Di Sarkar' (Punjabi) by Fowpe Sharma]
