The Pill - Poem by Asit Kumar Sanyal

Today I visited my neighbor's residence
Madam was mixing two different pills
one pill with a cup of tea
And another with a cup of milk
I said, 'What are the pills? '
She said, 'The pill I mixed with tea
Is a sugar-free
For my diabetic husband
And the other one...
I mixed with milk,
Is the birth control tablet
It's for my crazy pushy cat
I can't be irresponsible like our Govt.'

I said, 'If pills are interchanged, then? '
She smiled and said, 'It's not possible,
These pills are part of my life.'
I became surprised....
What a woman can think for her cat
The government can't think for it's citizen
Here the poor produces like cats too
And not bother about the country
Yet the country allows them, feeds them
By the tax payers easy money
But does not take any positive step
Like my neighboring woman
Because, one birth means one vote.
