A Poem On A Cancerous Shame... - Poem by PARTHA SARATHI PAUL

We should be and we are proud of Her.
She may be and She is proud of us!

Those who are genteel mince their words;
Gnash inside but never flash the diabolical teeth.

Many of us crawl like ten-legged crabs
And vainly grip ' The morning Suns '.

Many of us love to clip the soaring wings
As cawing crows are jealous of Skylarks`aplomb.

So many of us love to hit with cunning whips
And the targets suffer all the vindictive swipes.

We hurt the sentiment of our first Nobel Laureate;
Xenophobic mouths hit out to the 'maiden glory'.

Many such aspects provoke the fast 'brain-drain'-
Ingenious work of native genius attains foreign acclamation.

Our home turf adds a feather to a ready crown!
Rather vile words are ready to rip through the pink hearts.
