Apolitical - Poem by Moloy Bhattacharya

A message to the common people
lead a life, teaching to be simple
don't pollute your mind with politics
that can only make you more soporific
reason you find too brittle to hold back
with your all sweet and lovable relation
getting soured bitterly for resorting to escape
from truth you are loath to honestly convey
because now a pawn you are made of
shelter you a worm inside your body
gradually it would devour you completely
without your least knowledge of danger
sold is your conscience to certain symbols
to the masses you are posed as a rebel
empowered are you with borrowed power
you are an eclipsed moon now not seen clear.

    The poet has deftly put across the feelings of a common man who has seen the political circus of the country from close quarters only to be disillusioned in the process. Thank you, Moloy.
