Political Motives - Poem by Bhartendu Second

They say
'like ideology ploitics is dead'

They argue
' this stravation, violence, crimes without faces
are all there but in a text'

They have similar arguments
about man, woman, black, white, dalit, brahmin
and about everything in the universe

And more confidently they assert
this world has reached sustainable beauty
stability for a real future

They hate wars
and love peace

But their idiom has symptoms
that make millions dread them
and hate their motives

To say this all
has a political background
and a veiled confession
that despite their claims
'we need a better world'
with human heart
