Dons In Four Walls - Poem by Ram Krishna Singh

The house may collapse any day
the walls are cracked
the chinks gape at the base
but none care

they maintain dignity
with consmetic protection
demand patience and practise
duplicity till their own end

in meanness evoke mystery
to quell good sense and concerns
for the future buy silence
of the dons in four walls
