(26 Dec 1969, I won't be dead till you know I am alive. / Mahuva, Gujarat, India.)

2014


2014.

Have patience.
Do not jump my gun.
Dare you not proclaim victory,
Without my sanction.
Wait for my order.
You do as I please.
Me the fly in your ointment.
The Indian who never sleeps.
Hungry, naked, brutalised,
I am on the fence.
On guard,
Defenceless.
I do not war,
I bring the fear,
Of god in you.

Hardik Mahesh Vaidya.

    Well said, Hardik! Hope the election went the way of the good people of India.
    I like how the poem sounded almost military throughout, until you get to the last
    part where you say, 'I do not war, I bring the fear, of God in you'. That line totally
    levels the playing field of those trying to proclaim victory. Great poem! ! RoseAnn (Report) Reply
