Treasure Island

Nasarudheen.P. Parameswaran

(8.8.1952 / Manakad)

Where to?


Duryodhana ruled
In Indraprasth; Sakuni
Laughed; dreamed of nephew.
Ulysses so did
On his son Telemachus.
From British rulers
We Indians glided down to
The slavery of petty
Diary leaders(?) dealers.
Their sons and daughters
Queue for power: push us -
Commons off, you know?
Democracy, Bureaucracy
Crazy of power united
Keep us under Power cut
To grope in and vote.
Read, watch observe, then
From wisdom choose the way
For a change we want.
