Immunity: 02

I live
In a nation
that stands
for democracy?


Fearless expressions
Of truth,
Of beauty
in all that
we do or speak
in whatever
we think and act.


I live here
Unarmed-
Where safety is
with them
who are somehow
armed-
armed with muscles,
armed with ammunitions,
armed with power,
armed with police,
armed with money,
armed with law.



But I am a mere
voter, who is bonded
with a rigid pledge
never to complain
prior to the end-
End of five long years,
end of your term,
end of your regime.

But I am a mere voter, who is bonded with a rigid pledge never to complain prior to the end- End of five long years, Yes such is the evil fate we suffer from in a democratic country. Nicely crafted poem, thanks. 10

I live here Unarmed- Where safety is with them who are somehow armed- Such people, so powerful rule on us and bend us at their will. Well written. 10
