Truth - Essay in Poem

They came
and she weeps
even now
the holocaust
seethes
with drops of tear
awashed with anger

Raisina hill
move please,
move towards
a place,
where they
feel safe

Remove
their tears
stoke our dreams
not Anger

Raisina Hills
do not cower
with shame or fear

They are there
to protect
not harm

Our libidos

And tell those
policemen
that it is not
tear gas
they want

They want
profusion
of tears
so that
Blood
is not
Wasted.

Raisina Hills.
There is a prayer
The prayer says
Punish them
Punish us
if we do the
same
for tears will not
cannot be vanquished
by wooden sticks
battering us

They, we will
continue to speak
And, moving
cameras will
say:
Truth, truth, truth.
