Tear of the Poor

(Written to mourn the death of Y S Rajasekhara Reddy CM of Andhra Pradesh killed in a Helicopter crash on 03/09/2009. Several mourners were injured in stampede near his burial place. More than 100 people across AP reportedly died of shock or suicide following the unnatural death of their beloved leader.)

Lover of the poor,
Explorer of the remote,
With a skyful of hope
He soared
Over Nallamalai forest ranges
By Bell;
With no bell
He mingled in mud
Like invisible God.

Who says leaders are no gods?

Several injured in stampede
Hundreds die of shock

Who says state is no more a shrine?

Outpouring of grief,
As YSR laid to rest,
Surging democracy to test
 
Who says politics sheds only Crocodile tears?
