Barracks - Poem by Vinod Kumar

Narrow Man took oath
With Black Hand
Buried White skull smiles
Millions of participated the ceremony,

Millions viewed in live,
And buried millions white skulls
Those also smiles
With the white teeth

    Yeah it’s a great poetry against apartheid…

    Voting right of in US, ‘A black civil rights leader recently told an assembly at Michigan State University that American democracy was only decades old rather than centuries – that not until the 1965 Voting Rights Act when blacks could vote did democracy truly begin. ‘

    Interesting to note on 16 July 1969, for the first time by Neil Armstrong [before that the then USSR and US sent many satellites so science so advance yet humanity was in medieval darkness]

    And Obama shook off and compelled whites pay off all the debts to blacks by a Giant Coin

    So white skull may be feigning smile [inside may be unhappy] …

    I still feel undercurrent of apartheid is in strategic and tactical way unlike openly by Aussies’s [and elsewhere also] curry bashing….

    I feel no regret to say white as white and black as black…better ‘Accept Truth effortlessly’ ~ R.N.Tagore …thanks for sharing …

    The smile of while skull
    At the one who takes oath...
    Rediculing may be at sight.

    Hidden behind the those bases
    Are millions who take oath
    Knowing very well
    The smiles under the burried ground.

    The plight of a sect well expressed.
    Good theme. Good read.

    Thank you.
