Poem: The Country Is Dying…

By: Ananya S Guha

dead_country

what if
how if
why if

in inner turmoil
it lies in the ICU
doctors are on indefinite
strike. damn them.

animals are now predating it.
carcasses are ready.
infinity, time bound.

history is already dead.
save a bedraggled soul.

don’t squirm
look at galaxy ( of stars)

somewhere there is madness
howling. somewhere a cow gets stuck
on hooves.

the country is not dying.

what if
how if
why if.
