Girlfriend & Motherland - Poem by Debasish Mishra
You become a lot emotional
For the sake of your girlfriend,
But where do you lose your emotions all
When dealing with your motherland? ? ?
So care and concern for your mistress
And neglect of the mother;
Leaving her alone in utter distress
As if you have nothing to bother!
Oceans of tears and zeal extreme
For the fortunate girl;
No commitment, alas, for your mother grim
As if she were a discarded pearl!
O! The great modern lovers,
The heroes of the times;
I call you all roguish lovers-
Guilty of heinous crimes.
What right have you to draw her air
And live on her lap?
Who, in this world, alloted you
A place in her coveted map?
O wise man, O lover-
The girl might leave one day;
But this you learn- Forever
The mother, with you, will stay...
