Treasure Island

Dr. Yogesh Sharma

(1-7-1959 / india)

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.

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
