Contempt - Poem by CHOUDHURI SUKUMAR
How far does contempt lead a man to? How far?
I will descent, stark naked.
The earth below my feet will resonate in shudder,
with my hurt ego, in disbalanced steps
I shall go down the same way as
the unknown zodiacal stars glide down the sky.
And then, your world will burst out in laughter,
pelt stones at me, chant sarcastic words.
I shall surely go down the track
the way tears will down your eyes in mute sadness.
How far does contempt lead a man to.
Do you know? Do you,
whom you have animated into a tearful existence.
