Queeny Gona

(16th august,1987 / KANIGIRI)

Borders


The so called Traders:
Ignited us with the fire of 'Divide and rule'
In those days...
Leaving the blood shed riots at the borders till date!
The selfish leaders using the same
Stirred the minds of innocent,
With the notion 'Pratyeka Telangana'
Made victims of present Chaos!
Is not this rat race for position?
If not, pay tribute to Constitution;
Upholding Unity in Diversity!

    Hurrah! I belong to Andhra Pradesh, I am from Telangana, I love Telangana and know that injustice has been done to that part of the state. Yet, I don't feel disgusted about this political hungama of statehood as none is committed to it yet they wag their tales for their games and again! A smash poetry! Love this one! (Report) Reply

    I fully agree with you Queeny. Your reference to the British Colonial regime, who inculcated in us their selfish strategems is very appropriate. (Report) Reply
