RIP J DEY

RIP J DEY, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

life in mumbai
is not the same
by the way
kids raped
sodomized
a price they pay
law and order
died the day
you died
some say
women
battered
bludgeoned
acid thrown
on their faces
as the system
more interested
in big bucks
scams corruption
turns it head away
police commissioners
come and go
a musical chair
a game they play
but evil stays
criminals are no
more scared of cops
even young kids
have become more
daring each day
get caught let
off on bail
climb a pipe
rape a foreigner
athitho devo
bhava repay
law and order
the climate
in mumbai
dark bleak
murderously
gray
mumbai
ki jay
neta logon
ki jai jaikar
sirf dar aur bhay
no love humanity
no bhaichara
no sneh
after 3 months
the organizer
of the azad maidan
riot gets caught
politically protected
what more can one
say hope we get
back our old days
fervently to a god
who too has dozed off
we impotently pray
as for senior citizens
getting murdered
the easiest way
getting their
prope…

shoots pictures
this angel without
wings her street
photography
a cosmic thing
a new surprise
on the soul of
my poetry
she springs
one of the
nuggets
on my ring
a sparkling gem
above all thing
