(Dedicated to those who can read the signs of times)
Want for chakula and more want …
Hunger pangs without being hungry
Thirsting for more food, drink and pleasure
For food, drink and pleasure
Sometime, just the notion of it
Craving for power!
To make all humanity bow at the snap of your fingers
Such a craving!
For means to sustain that POWER
Hunger pangs leading to grab, grab, and more grab!
Money grab, sex grab, land grab and more grab!
A drunken feeling of emptiness
In spirit, deeds, relations and all life’s endeavors
An empty feeling of want and more want…
Selfish pursuit for more pleasure, power and ACCUMULATION
Cry my beloved country
For birthing this monstrous pursuit for chakula among the least hungry
A land of abundance that feeds not its hungry bodies and minds!
