New Earth – Mr. Debasis Tripathy, Bangalore

1329688998Often in this fast, crowded street,

On modern life’s frenzied platform,

I’m forced to accept a fight-less defeat.

I disobey their mandates, decline to perform.


To this world’s seemingly discordant power,

Which even levies a tax on air and water

And forces you to work every day, every hour.

I oppose the sanction for the house of slaughter.


Around my ‘free’ way, the mighty forces press;

They claim this new earth is unconditionally theirs,

I am full of weaknesses and their ways merciless.

They’ve paid the fees – the millionaires & billionaires.


Even as I wilt, willing to succumb, to perish,

They won’t let me – now the market is bullish!
