RM (26TH JANUARY / KOLKATA, INDIA)

An Inferno

AN INFERNO


bickering thoughts
prevail upon
more humane aspects
than just gathering information
though on the opposite footpath
‘right to information’ people
gather stories
count heads
administration rummage stats


search for reason in vain
‘have you forgotten’ someone say
‘failure is the pillar of success’
‘minister was a back-bencher’


smarter people
use digital
sale photos over net
some are artists
pictures of inferno may come handy
in their next production


two old men lost all
in their seventies
amidst the crowd
question the sky
why we suffer
for no fault of ours


nobody answers
the flickering fire
continues…
