BADRI RAINA
An unlovely trumpet sounds

The knell of decency

Across the chosen land.

Many who would clench

A fist at the world seem

Willing to join the band.

The prickly music pokes

A threatening finger

Near and far; it seeks not

Harmony and peace but war.

There are those who have

No ease of being unless they

Succeed in making enemies.

Their talisman is to uproot

With might, then step in

With selfless exertions to set

The ungrateful corpses right.

Time for those who still are free

And brave to return to his

Money bags the pretending knave.
