O Mother, Who Really - Poem by Ramprasad Sen

O Mother, who really
Knows Your magic?

You're a crazy girl
Driving us all crazy with these tricks.

No one knows anyone else
In a world of Your illusions.

Kali's tricks are so deft,
We act on what we see.

And what suffering --
All because of a crazy girl!

Who knows
What She truly is?

Ramprasad says: If She decides
To be kind, this misery will pass.

    If She decides
    To be kind, this misery will pass. When will she decide for our country?
