This World - Poem by Bhartendu Second

no, the cry is not
really so far away
as they paint

no, the mother is not
with a milky breast
or any such possibility

no, the doctor is not
working in the O T
and anaesthesia
has failed on the patient

is'nt it a farce
to coin so many no's
nothing's
when the world is
still alive to its
shames and stupidities
