I Should Have Known

All my dreams
dumped into the drain
the powers that be
have declared me insane…

They laugh at me
for them I drained my blood
they avoid me
for them I blew the conch…

They who worship the rising sun
they who applaud the cursed run
they who enjoy being the scum
they who only like the fun…

Was it my fault
or of Prometheus
was I to blame
or Christ
who lessoned me in compassion
was I the culprit
or Gandhi
who taught me to work for the weak
was I stupid
or Lincoln…?

Oh my God!
Weren’t they all 
beaten, punished, killed?
I should have known!!
