Independence Day


Slaughtered soldiers,
Blasted submarine,
Fried sailors
Masses wailing for free quotas,
Happy Independence Day.

Millions parched throats,
Billions hungry stomachs,
Toiling naked bodies,
Hapless Durgas crying,
Happy Independence Day.

Terrorists canonized,
Rioters prized,
Vote banks ride,
Rapists protected by constitution,
Happy Independence Day.

Flooded roads,
Begging as a state career,
Justice system, a criminal bliss;
And irritation to truthful,
Happy Independence Day.
