MODERN DAYS

MODERN DAYS


One banker is flying...over Jharkhand by night
enjoying sips of wine, red wine..why not in (his) life!
He'll be the main reason guiding, easy hiring and firing
of workers
promoted by gangsters
of markets
institutions of plaster!

One mother slogged
an entire life
just to buy
tools of dirty work
for her beautiful son
..and stood the full burden
of voracious hunger.

He will die.

While you still pray to the sky..

..at the sweet age of five
for tuberculosis...
maternal psychosis..

Material nature shows off
with beauty and disasters
its ignorance of "gurus", of ''masters"
and the shams of apologists
grim shows..generated by economists
by their 'naïve' consent
and their dull cosy attacks

through boss-friendly activists
political horror mist..
hypocritical harmonists
alledgely unaware.. of the systemic iron fist.

A love story is refused
down at Shadipur..
as she'll seek liberation
from material pain
by catching the train
of better-off exploitation

The sun shines,
The moon cries..

...what less could we know about life.
