The Rock-Bodies sans Conscience
by Dr. Varanasi Ramabrahmam
Bookmark and Share
 
Why statues of the artists, artistes
are erected and unveiled?
Won't they live in their works eternally?
 
Enjoying their works is best tribute 
To them and not making them mere rock-bodies
 
Rock-bodies are too rock-like 
Political leaders who never move for the 
benefit of citizens and are selfish ever
 
And are inert in or out of power for voters woes or problems
Always useless like the statue at the four-streets' center
 
Politicians corner all benefits of power
Never care even if cornered by citizens at times
 
They must be made responsible for their
heinous crimes of dividing citizens and 
even make them kill one another for their votes
As persons collecting change on dead bodies
 
They must be made immovable like statues 
never allowing them to contest 
and become representatives and rulers of
Innocent and needy citizens
 
And wailing nation
Burdened under inflation, terror-strikes
corruption, nepotism, dynastic party establishments
And party-politics making mockery of democracy
In party system and ruling elite
 
Rock-bodies as statues are not stone-carvings
But our representatives, the moving stones
And personification of lies and greed sans compassion
The rock-bodies sans conscience
